Mudd Library Services Update

Building Access: To minimize the risk of COVID-19 transmission, the Seeley G. Mudd Library building remains closed until further notice.

Access to Information Resources: See for remote access to electronic resources, including journal articles and other digital resources.

Library Instruction: Contact the Library Instruction Coordinator for consultation on integrating digital sources into remote courses, to schedule a Library instruction session with remote classes, and to plan library assignments designed for remote learners.

Interlibrary Loan: We will continue to request articles and book chapters that can be fulfilled electronically, but we will not be placing requests for loans of books or other returnable items. Patrons who currently have ILL loans can request a renewal by logging into your ILL account. For more information, contact:
