You have probably heard by now that all University of Iowa Libraries–including the engineering library – closed at 5 pm on Tuesday, March 17 and will be closed through at least April 3.
We may not be physically in the library but we are working to provide you with the resources you need.
We will still have online chat available Mon-Fri from 8:30 am to 5:00 pm. You may access this by going to our homepage and clicking on the link “Chat with a Librarian.”
You are also encouraged to contact us through our departmental email. It is being monitored closely. The address is firstname.lastname@example.org
We have staff who will be coming in routinely to do book scanning and mailing materials to patrons who need them. During the duration we will be mailing book materials to anywhere in the U.S., including personal homes. We will not be able to mail items from our tool library – including technology.
If you are in the Iowa City area and need materials or equipment, send an email to the department email address and we’ll see what can be worked out!
We have so many resources online – e-books, e-articles, streaming videos, and more! Check our “We Are Here for You” link on our homepage – you’ll find blogs about our e-resources and how to access them from off campus – many vendors are granting free access during this time – take advantage!
We will be posting updates about news and updates as we get them – be sure to check our “We Are Here for Your” link regularly – and feel free to email if you have any questions!
For additional information, please see https://www.lib.uiowa.edu/alerts/coronavirus/
We really ARE here for you – let us know what you need and we’ll make every effort to help you!
Our physical library may be closed –
but we still are awesome!
