Accessing Library Resources from Off-Campus  

Your colleagues in Belk Library have compiled a page to help you connect to materials from off-campus.

Research guides are available to help you and your students find online resources to support your work.

Library instruction will transition to Moodle and WebEx, with liaison librarians continuing to work closely with teaching faculty to support the research and resource needs of those classes as needed.   By prior arrangement, your liaison librarian can join your course via WebEx, join an asynchronous chat with the class, or prepare a guide to resources specific to a research assignment.

Faculty requests for purchase of new materials will be prioritized in e-format, if available.  Please contact your liaison librarian with questions or requests.  If you need assistance exploring the availability of e-materials required for your course, please reach out to your liaison librarians.

Interlibrary Loan of physical items has largely ceased across the country, but ILL of electronic materials continues depending upon availability.  If items can be borrowed, they will be delivered via email.
