COVID-19 Pandemic Emergency Electronic Resource Purchase Policy

In order to support teaching and learning during the COVID-19 pandemic, Galvin Library will try to purchase access to electronic materials upon instructor request. Electronic access is subject to vendor availability and user and/or time limits, though resources will be purchased in a way that best replicates our in-person access to our print textbook collection to allow for appropriate access. This may result in resources being restricted to a single user for a limited checkout period, when that option is available. Some items may not be available in an electronic format, or may not be purchased at the discretion of the Collections and Resources Steering group, for reasons such as accessibility issues or inflated pricing. Items requested for purchase should not replace students’ purchasing of required course materials. They are meant to supplement teaching and learning and serve as a back-up when a student is unable to access their required materials. Students experiencing financial difficulties should contact the financial aid office to explore options. 

When possible, instructors are urged to use Open Educational Resources and/or resources already available through Galvin Library. Instructors may contact their subject specialist for more information.

Other Materials

Unfortunately, AV and other non-print or electronic materials will not be accessible at this time.
