Due to COVID-19, library services have been altered to facilitate social distancing. Right now, many library locations have opened for limited hours. Members of the Yale community have a choice between contactless and mediated checkouts, and many study spaces are available. Librarian consultation services, workshops, and instruction remain remote until further notice.
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.
This page describes how to make requests for new items; how to use QuickSearch (or the old Orbis catalog) to narrow down with facets so you can quickly locate what you need; and contains two feeds from the library catalog that display the print-only books and ebooks that have recently been added to the catalog.
This page talks specifically about ebooks. The Library's ebook environment is complicated. This page contains links to guidance in our collection development policies; information about locating historical digitized materials in the HathiTrust; and showcases some eBook databases and research guides that will make using them easier for you.
