For general inquiries about library services and resources, please contact:
The McGraw-Page Library building is closed, and students, faculty, and staff on-campus are not currently being granted access to the physical space for any reason. We encourage members of the R-MC community to search our catalog for electronic resources that can serve as alternatives to our print holdings. If print materials are needed from the McGraw-Page Library, please place a hold through the catalog and you will receive an email when your item is available for pick-up (learn how).
Interlibrary loan is continuing to function on a limited basis. Most libraries around the country have stopped shipping and receiving physical materials such as books and DVDs, and so only article requests or book chapter requests can be filled at this time. Materials can be requested via Tipasa. From the library catalog and most databases, follow the options to "Request via Interlibrary Loan." If you request a book, please the specify chapters you need.
Physical course reserves cannot currently be accessed from the McGraw-Page Library building. If physical reserves need to be made electronically available for a course, please contact Luke Haushalter to discuss what options are available.
The Library is working hard to maintain access to our electronic resources during this time. If you have trouble accessing any of our resources, try using the Chrome internet browser. If this does not resolve your issue, please email email@example.com and we will troubleshoot your specific problem. Please include as much information in your email as possible.
Due dates have been automatically updated in Library accounts wherever possible. Regardless of the date that appears in your library account, the due dates below apply, and all fines and fees have been waived. If you receive a notice of a fine or fee, it was sent in error; please email firstname.lastname@example.org to have it removed from your account.
If you have materials to return:
P.O. Box 5005
Ashland, VA 23005
If neither of these solutions works for you, please contact us at email@example.com to make arrangements.
Instructional design and technology resources and support are being provided remotely during this time.
Research assistance is still available for student and faculty research.
Information literacy instruction is still available using a variety of methods, such as live class collaborations via Zoom, flipped instruction, or pre-recorded demonstrations. Please contact your subject librarian to determine what would be most appropriate for your class.
Streaming video and other multimedia resources are available through the Library website. These resources can be linked into Canvas as assignments or course materials or viewed by the R-MC community.
Special Collections & Archives located in the McGraw-Page Library is currently closed to reseachers and visitors. We may be able to provide some research assistance, depending upon the nature and extent of the request. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org with details regarding your research request.
