ATTENTION: For summer and fall 2020, due to COVID-19 and the move to distance learning, we intend to fill reserve requests with ebooks (if they are available). We will do our best to provide online versions of your reading materials, which will be available in OneSearch.

If you would like further assistance with assigned readings, please feel free to consult our Online Services guide or speak with your subject librarian.
