COVID-19 and Library Services

The campus is currently operating on limited services procedures. The Library is physically closed for the rest of the semester. When the campus resumes normal operations, the Library will restore regular library services. 

Access to Textbooks and Course Reserves

Due to the Colorado's stay at home order, the Library is limited to searching for ebook or streaming versions for films for requested items. Processing and response times will be slower as we must work with vendors, whom in many cases are understaffed, in order to get online access to materials. Not all items have an ebook or streaming version available and those requests may be put on hold until the stay at home order is lifted.

Prospector is Unavailable

Due to the impact of COVID-19, Prospector is no longer available. We currently do not know when it will be available again, but will post that information as soon as it is available.

Is the Library open?

No. The Library is no longer opened, but we continue to provide virtual research assistance. 

Getting Research Assistance 

Virtual research assistance is available through chat, email, phone, and text. All of these features are available on the library homepage or see https://www.uccs.edu/library/help  

Getting Access to Books and Other Library Items

The Library is currently closed, but access to online journal articles, ebooks and streaming videos continues.

What happens if I already have library items checked out?

The Library is no longer able to take back library items due to the stay at home order from the state. Even the outside book drop off bin is locked. If you have items checked out, please hold onto them. Due dates will be extended and no fines will accrue for these materials.
