Coronavirus / COVID-19

Computers

I still need access to a computer and/or WiFi.  Where can I go?

The Boreham Library will be open starting Monday, August 3rd - please see our hours page.  The 24 Hour Zone is also open.  For a list of software available in the 24 Hour Zone, please visit this page from IT (note: it may be out of date).

Examity

Will I still be able to take my Examity exam in the library?

During the pandemic, library computers will not be available to use for Examity - we cannot guarantee they have been sanitized in-between uses.  Students can reserve study rooms to take exams using Examity on their own personal laptops.  Library help for troubleshooting Examity technical issues will not be available.

Help

I need help from a librarian with my research!

The librarians will continue to man our chat service.  You can also contact us via email or submit your question to us.  Please use the chat widget on this page or visit our Ask a Librarian page if you need help.

We also have several video tutorials available to help you learn how to find and use library databases to find articles!

You also can schedule an appointment with a librarian for more extensive help.  We can meet with you over Microsoft Teams, a product you have available as a UAFS student or employee.

Interlibrary Loan

Will I still be able to make Interlibrary Loan requests?

Yes, Interlibrary Loan for books and articles is available for use.  Please be aware that there may be additional delays in receiving your articles or books, so please plan ahead!

Library Surfaces

Will the library be safe for me to use?

Per the UAFS Chancellor: "[The campus cleaning service] has been directed to deep clean and disinfect our campus and to effectively close those areas so they remain disinfected.

Also, please be sure to disinfect and sanitize public spaces before and after you use them.  Supplies will be available from the library.  

Computers and chairs have been removed to promote social distancing.  Please do not move chairs or computers.
