Accessing Off-Campus Collections

Milne Library Project

Inspections by the Department of Environmental Health and Safety have confirmed the presence of asbestos particles in areas of Milne Library. Air quality testing has determined the air does not pose a risk, and the presence of asbestos in a building does not necessarily constitute a health threat. However, because the safety of students, employees, and visitors is paramount, the College has decided to initiate a remediation project to begin as soon as possible. As a result, the library will remain closed for an extended period of time, probably through the spring semester.

Locating Materials During Library Closure

During the library closure, physical materials available from Milne Library are limited to Course Reserves (Sturges 120). The Teacher Education Resource Center (TERC) and Special Collections & Archives will be inaccessible during the closure. This guide offers some alternatives for exploring simliar or alternative collections off-campus.

Students and faculty are encouraged to explore GLOCAT to see if any materials can be borrowed using IDS. Filtering your search to the SUNY Catalog or Worldcat will help expand your results.

If you need assistance in locating materials or using IDS, you may contact a librarian:
