For current students, faculty and staff, we hope the following guidelines and services will enhance access to the MOHL’s resources, including physical collections, while the library is closed to the general public.
Digital books and periodicals remain accessible from campus and remotely. If you have difficulties please contact us at email@example.com for assistance.
All physical items received through Summit or ILL will be quarantined for 4 days before being made available. Please take this delay into account and plan accordingly.
a. Contactless pick up will remain available for those who request it. Request your items through the catalog. Once you receive the email that the item is on the hold shelf, click on the link in that notice to request contactless pick up. We will check items out to you and send you a numerical pickup code associated with the material via email. (For privacy reasons we won’t label packages with your name). Materials will be placed on a book cart in the library vestibule for you to pick up. You will have 7-days to pick it up once you receive the email. Once we check it out to you, you are considered responsible for the book. You will need a valid ID to access the vestibule 24/7.
b. Remote students can request to have materials sent via USPS. If you are not in Salem, request your items through the catalog. Once you receive the email that the item is on the hold shelf, click on the link in that notice to request mail delivery. We will check it out to you and send you an email indicating the item(s) we have sent. Once we check it out to you we will consider you responsible for the book, including returning it to the library.
