Library Services - COVID-19 Response: Home

Status

Ikeda Library is closed until further notice due to California and Federal mandates regarding COVID-19. The library staff will continue to provide our services remotely.

We will update this guide with information, resources, and materials throughout this time period. 

Help

  • Chat/Text Message- Connect with librarians via MS Teams Chat/Text message for assistance with research or any questions you may have. This is our preferred method so that we can ask follow-up questions easily to help you better.
  • Email - We are checking our email daily. A library staff member will respond to your questions as soon as possible.
  • Research Consultation - Students, faculty, and staff may request one-on-one assistance with a reference librarian regarding your research needs. Set a time to talk using Teams phone or video line.
