What if my books are due when the campus is closed?

The due dates for all items due during this closure have been renewed through January 2021, and no fines will accrue while we are closed. The campus is closed so items cannot be returned to the library until campus is re-opened. Please hold on to your checked out items until the library reopens.

Although all due dates have been forwarded to January 2021, items can still be returned at a pre-scheduled library return events. The next drop-off/pick-up dates and times can be viewed here.

All visitors to campus must wear a mask, to maintain 6-feet social distance, and should not enter campus if they are feeling unwell.

Please note: that you do not need return your items until we reopen – all due dates have been forwarded through August (and no fines are accruing during the closure), but if you would like to return your library items then you can do so at one of these above events.

How can I get help with my projects, papers and assignments?

The MVC Library's many online resources - including journals, ebooks, magazines, newspapers, streaming video and more - remain available. You can access these electronic resource from our A-Z database list.

Librarians can also be contacted for assistance during our regular hours through our library chat service, our drop-in Zoom room, by appointment, or via email. For all the ways to contact a librarian, see our How to Contact a Librarian page.

Online tutorial assistance with fully trained experts is provided 24/7 through NetTutor.

Will I be able to checkout books or equipment when the campus is closed?

Starting August 11, students will be able to place requests on available library materials through the library catalog, OneSearch, and pick them up at scheduled pick-up events.

All checkouts are for the entire semester. Holds must be placed by noon on the day before the event is held to ensure they are ready in time.
