The Galvin Library will be open with reduced hours in order to provide responsible continuation of services to students, faculty, and staff during the COVID-19 virus.
While we understand that this is a disruption, we feel that it will better enable us to meet the ongoing needs of our community at this time while taking measures to reduce the spread of the virus.
During this time staff will be available for services. We have created this guide to help the Illinois Tech community access our resources and services during this time.
Services that remain available include:
The following library services will not be available during this time:
Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions or need extensions on materials you have checked out that are due back during the closure. We will extend loan periods and waive any fines associated with the closure.
Databases and other electronic resources can be accessed online. You must go through the library's website in order to authenticate and access these resources. In order to see the full list of databases, you must first go to the "Find Articles & More" tab and select "View all Databases" under the "Databases" heading.
Librarians are available to assist with research via chat and email. A chat box is available on our main page at library.iit.edu. If librarians are available, they will be able to assist you live through the chat. If not, your question will be submitted and answered within a business day.
