During this period, staff will not be available to support normal interlibrary loan and course reserve services. Physical documents and other materials that have already been scanned and placed in online course reserve will continue to be available; however, it will not be possible to scan and upload any new materials until after the libraries have reopened.

We will continue to support requests for new electronic materials to be added to course reserve during the closure period, and we will be able to fulfill requests for document delivery electronically during this period as well. If you have questions, please contact mlib-reserve@lists.utah.edu regarding course reserve or Rick Anderson (rick.anderson@utah.edu) regarding interlibrary loan and document delivery.

We are extending due dates for checked out materials until further notice. Contact mlib-circulation@lists.utah.edu if you have questions about your loans.
