Pedagogical Resources : Summer 2020 Library Services

This guide was created collaboratively with the Summer Pedagogical Development Committee (Summer 2020)

Curbside Pick-Up Service

For more information about our current services, please visit https://www.oxy.edu/academics/library/covid-19-service-updates

Faculty, students, and staff can request access to our circulating analog materials (books, DVDs, CDs etc.) by placing holds on items via the library catalog or by emailing requests to library@oxy.edu.

Materials will be paged by library staff, checked out to the requester, and placed in bags with the name of the individual for pickup. Requesters will be notified by email when the items are ready and must schedule a pickup time by emailing library@oxy.edu. Pickups will be offered twice per week: on Tuesdays and Fridays from 10am to Noon and take place on the patio at the main entrance to the Academic Commons. We will practice social distancing and require requesters to wear face masks. Returns can be placed in the book drop at the main entrance to the Academic Commons. 

Please Note: The Library cannot deliver materials to requesters. This is a pickup service only.

Digitization Services

Faculty, students, and staff can request digitization of print and media materials the library owns, including articles and book chapters, DVDs, and CDs by emailing requests to  library@oxy.edu. Depending on the size and complexity of the request, orders will typically be completed within one to two weeks. Requesters will be notified by email when the items are ready.

In addition, faculty, students, and staff may request digital copies of primary resources to support their research, teaching, and learning, should contact Special Collections and College Archives at specialcollection@oxy.edu.

Faculty wishing the Library to digitize materials they own should make special arrangements by contacting library@oxy.edu.
