Due to COVID-19, library services have been altered to facilitate social distancing. Right now (August 12, 2020), some library locations are opening for pickup only, and the Library is finalizing plans for study space access and essential onsite services for Fall 2020. Remote assistance and digital support services from librarians remain available.
For up-to-date information, please visit the Library's statement on COVID-19.
This guide contains important information about connecting to a variety of library resources. In addition to the content on the guide, let me stress:
- QuickSearch Books+ has faceted searching. If you are only looking for online content, after searching, please select "Online" under format. The Library has made significant updates to QuickSearch to facilitate users who need online-only materials.
- Library staff are still here to support you in your teaching, learning, and research. Please contact me using the information on my profile (below). You may email or schedule a Zoom appointment.
- The Yale University Library is transitioning from VPN-mediated access to a tool called "EZProxy" to help you access materials more seamlessly. Please visit this site for questions about the new authentication system, but for the majority of our online resources, you will now be sent to an authentication screen and you will not need to use VPN.
We have a purchase request form if you need something that is not currently available.
