There is no way to provide short-term/reserves print loans safely due to the quarantine times required for material to become virus-free, per the standards we're following. The library’s reserves team is working closely with faculty to make as much required reading as possible available electronically via Moodle in the E-reserves section for each course, within copyright allowances. Unfortunately, publishers generally have not made textbooks for science, math, economics, and languages available for libraries to purchase electronically. Students may need to utilize their financial-aid allowance for books to rent access to these, either in print or online; contact with questions.
