Dear Spartan community,
Your library staff misses you! But, we are working remotely and are still “here” virtually to help you with your research needs or any questions you may have.
We are still available to help!
- email firstname.lastname@example.org
- call us at (802) 468-6409
- use the chat feature from the library website or here 24/7
- make an appointment with a librarian for help by phone or Zoom
- request interlibrary loans of journal articles and other materials we can send by email
Library books checked out
If you have materials borrowed from the library that are overdue or due soon, just let us know and we will renew them, including interlibrary loan items. You can hold onto them until we are open again. If you are in the area, you can put books (but not CDs or DVDs or other non-print media please) in the outdoor book return bin in front of the library. If you are not in the area, you can mail materials to this address:
Calvin Coolidge Library
178 Alumni Drive
Castleton, VT 05735
We are no longer able to get physical items through interlibrary-loan for you, but we can still obtain digital materials for you. Use this link or the link to “Interlibrary Loan System” under Research Help on the library’s website to make a request.
And a large portion of our resources are online anyway! Please explore our website if you haven’t already to see what’s available to you.
In addition to our regular resources, several publishers have been generous in allowing access to ebooks and additional content during this emergency. You can access thousands of additional ebooks now through our EBSCO ebook platform, for example. These ebooks will be searched and included in OneSearch for the rest of the semester.
Several textbook publishers have offered access to textbooks and other learning materials online for free for the rest of the semester.
Learn more about all of these free-for-now materials as well as open educational resources available to you on the library’s Teaching and Learning guide. Contact us through the channels above if you’d like us to see if a particular textbook is available.
Please stay safe and be in touch if we can help with anything, or if you just miss your Castleton people. We are thinking of you!
