LNDL Operations During COVID-19 Emergency - 3.16.2020 Update

Library Building Access:

The library is closed and will open at a date to be determined.

Remote Library Services:

  • Get research or technology help from a librarian online 24/7 via chat and through scheduled video meetings or instruction.
  • The book drop will be closed. Do not leave books or media materials at any of the entryways to the building; keep your items until the library reopens. No fines will be accrued.
  • To renew LNDL books, select “Library Account” under “My Accounts” on the library’s website. 
  • Patrons can continue to request access to online materials not owned by LNDL through their Inter-library Loan accounts.  
  • Only already digitized course reserves will be available.  A librarian can help you find alternative electronic materials if you want to add them.
  • Many vendors have made their collections and databases free during this emergency. We will continue updating this list as more become available: https://guides.lndlibrary.org/COVID19OnlineResources
  • No room reservations will be accepted until the library reopens.
