Library Service Updates for Spring 2020

Last updated: Friday, May 1, 2020, 10:00 AM

In this time of uncertainty, the Library Staff want to assure you that we are available to help meet your research needs. Tell us how we can assist you and feel free to ask a Librarian for help by clicking on the chatbox on the bottom right of your computer screen.

Facilities

  • The Library will be closed until the Reformed Presbyterian Theological Seminary reopens.

Checking out and returning materials

  • If a student needs resources during these weeks, he or she should request resources via email (jfeagley@rpts.edu) and a staff member will notify the student when the requested resources are ready to be picked up. Please do not come to the Seminary directly after placing your request, but wait for the staff to respond. We will let you know when and where to pick up your item(s).
  • The Library is now accepting book returns! A locked book depository is located in the back entrance of the Seminary. Patrons should enter the back (enclosed) entrance and deposit your items in the book drop. There is no need to notify the Library Staff of your book deposit. Staff will be collecting items throughout the day. 
  • Patrons may only return their items during normal business hours (Monday-Friday between 8 a.m. and 4:30 p.m.).
  • Patrons will be extended a grace period (i.e. waiving fines); however, all items must be returned to the RPTS Library no later than May 15, 2020.

Online Resources

  • Our online research portal, T.R.E.E. is filled with valuable e-resources such as databases, digital journals, e-books, repositories, and much more.

Additional Resources

  • Since the COVID-19 social limitations started last week, the global library community began to band together in mass collaboration to provide support and information for students around the world. In particular, some publishers, vendors, and other organizations are partnering together to provide FREE access to electronic resources for you!
  • Also, please keep checking that page because more resources and services will be added each day.
