Drew University continues to monitor the impact of the COVID-19 novel coronavirus. Please refer to the campus resource site for the latest campus information.
This page will provide updates on the status of library services within the university’s COVID-19 response. This information is current as of Friday, September 3, 2021 and is subject to change at any time.
Building Access: The library building is open. Masks are required while in the library regardless of vaccination status. Study rooms and public computers are now available. If you have questions about any specific services, you can ask at the circulation desk or email firstname.lastname@example.org. The Methodist Archives are open to the Drew community and by appointment to researchers living in the US.
Access to Information Resources:
Research Help and Consultation: Start with the Ask a Librarian page for Zoom appointments and open office hour schedules. If the chat service is offline, forward your question via email, and we will reply as soon as we are able. Note that Library Chat is also available from Moodle. Contact Reference and Research Services: email@example.com or (973) 408-3588
Library Instruction: For consultation on integrating digital sources into courses, to schedule a Library instruction session, or to plan library assignments designed for on-site and remote learners, please either write to firstname.lastname@example.org or use this form to submit your request. A librarian will be in touch soon to offer assistance.
Circulation and Reserves:
Inter-Library Loan: If you would like to request loans or scans of material that Drew does not own, you may place an interlibrary loan request. Scan requests typically take 1 to 2 business days and loan requests usually take 1 to 2 weeks. If you need a specific format (for example, an eBook rather than a physical loan) please be sure to include that in the request notes.
Special Collections and Archives:Drew University Special Collections and the GCAH continue to monitor developments related to the pandemic. At this time we are open to all members of the Drew community and by appointment-only to researchers living within the United States of America. This plan is contingent on the infection rate in New Jersey and the United States. Prior to planning a research trip, please be in conversation with Frances Lyons of the GCAH, email@example.com for archival research or Candace Reilly of Drew University, firstname.lastname@example.org, about any needed documentation or protocols upon arrival.
Instructional Technology and Media Resource Center: See drew.edu/itus for service updates, hours, and contact information.
Computer Helpdesk: University Technology Helpdesk staff and students are accepting appointments for equipment pickup/dropoff. Service updates, hours, and contact information are available on the UT website
