ALERT: Learn more about the Krauskopf Library's Plan as we resume on campus services.

COVID Updates: Updates

Updates

As of Monday, August 24th, the Krauskopf Library will resume on-campus services. Policies and hours are subject to change at any time in response to evolving needs and situations.

As in all campus buildings, masks are required in the library. At this time use of all DelVal buildings, including the libraries, is restricted to outside visitors.

Our Building

The Krauskopf Memorial Library building will be serving as classroom space for the Fall 2020 semester. Classes are being held in the wings from 8:00 am - 4:30 pm. The wings are not open outside of classes.

The lobby will be open for picking up holds and browsing the leisure collection. Updated hours are available on the library homepage.

Available campus spaces include FLDM 101, FLDM 103, ALLM 204, and LFSC 208 from 7am -11pm daily. 

Borrowing

To minimize the handling of library materials, we encourage you to request that library items be held for you to pick up at the front desk. Use the “Hold” button in our library catalog and you will receive an email when your item is ready. To learn how to place a hold for pickup, use the following tutorial.

Interlibrary loan requests will be delayed due to the pandemic and many library closures. 

Reserves

Due to the pandemic, we will not offer in-library use materials this year. Please evaluate whether your reserves can scanned / accessed digitally, made 3-day reserves, or eliminated for the upcoming year. All faculty with items on reserves will be contacted by the library to make these changes as appropriate. Please contact Claire Drolet with any questions. 

Computers and Printing

Computers are not available for use at this time. The scanner is still available to email or save documents via USB.

As of September 7th, the Library will resume offering printing. Students can email their documents to the Circulation Desk and pick them up in the Library.

Printing fees are 3¢ per page for black and white, 50¢ per page for color. Students can charge up to $5.00 to their library account and pay in cash at the end of the semester. 

Research Assistance

Librarians can help with brief questions through email, phone or text.  We can address more in depth research questions, requests and offer consultations through Zoom or other remote technology.

Instruction

Librarians will be offering Zoom instruction and online tutorials this semester. Please contact Karen Sheldon for undergraduate courses and Elise Georgulis for graduate courses.
