Spring 2021 Hours
- Monday–Friday, 9:00 a.m.–4:00 p.m.
- Hours may be expanded in mid-February
- Whenever possible, the library will purchase electronic versions of course materials. However, most publishers do not allow for digital licensing of electronic textbooks to libraries. Students are reminded that the Campus Bookstore is the location for purchasing their own copies of course textbooks. The Nesbitt Library provides a select number of textbooks to students for temporary use.
- Print course-reserve textbooks are subject to the same 96-hour quarantine period as other library materials; however, students will be allowed to take the course reserve items home for a 24-hour loan period.
- The Nesbitt Library will work with campus faculty to determine whether we can make any course materials available electronically via our e-Reserves system. Students are encouraged to ask their faculty to reach out to library staff if they have not done so already.
- Four study rooms, each equipped with a computer, are available for individual use only: AC201A (“fishbowl”), AC 206, AC 207, and AC 209. Students may reserve these rooms in advance by contacting the Nesbitt Library staff ([email protected] or 570-675-9212). If a room is not reserved, then it is available on a first-come, first-served basis.
- AC 210 (the library computer lab) will be available to accommodate up to six students for studying when a class is not in session.
- AC 201 (General library space) will be limited; socially distanced seats will be available for individual study throughout the library.
