UGA Libraries Offer Online Assistance to Faculty, Students; Facilities Close During Instruction Break
The University of Georgia Libraries remain UGA’s gateway to knowledge through digital resources and remote consultations with students, faculty and staff amid the campus’s transition to online instruction.
Starting Wednesday, March 17, all of the UGA Libraries’ facilities in Athens will be closed to the public through the university’s break in instruction. But librarians, archivists and professional staff will continue to provide services to faculty, students, and researchers in a variety of ways.
As part of the University of Georgia’s response to the COVID-19 situation, UGA Libraries have extended due dates for books and other materials checked out from the Libraries.
The extended due date for items in the Libraries’ collection is July 1.
For materials checked out through Inter-Library Loan, contact email@example.com.
Students who return to campus to retrieve their belongings may return their books via the drive-thru book drop in the Main Library parking lot, but this is NOT required.
The University of Georgia Libraries have suspended tours and community events in the Richard B. Russell Building Special Collections Libraries through March 29.
The decision is in accordance with the University System of Georgia decision to suspend classes at UGA and other universities amid the COVID-19 outbreak.
During the University of Georgia’s spring break March 7-15, students, faculty and staff may continue to visit UGA Libraries, although various locations will operate on a different schedule.
The Main Library on North Campus and the Science Library on South Campus will close on Sunday, March 8 and reopen 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday, March 9 through Friday, March 13. The locations will return to normal business hours on Saturday, March 14.
The University of Georgia will conduct campus-wide network maintenance on Saturday, March 7 from 6:00 a.m. - midnight. As a result, there may be intermittent outages of campus Internet access and information systems. Since the exact timing of outages on Saturday will be unpredictable, please assume that online resources will be unavailable.
For the Libraries, if the network is down you will not be able to log into our computers or use the wireless network. Our systems (e.g., websites, databases, e-journals) will be inaccessible from campus.
You will still be able to check out books.
GIL and GALILEO will only be accessible during outages if you are using a non-UGA Internet service provider at the following URLs:
The GIL-Find library catalog will be searchable at https://bit.ly/2tSilo1. You will not be able to log into your account, renew books online, or place requests when the network is down.
