When the Library is closed, or you prefer to work remotely, there are many ways the Oxford College Library can provide you with expert help and services. See also specific resources for the Woodruff Library. Always check the Oxford College Library website for the latest information about our hours and services.
Last minute citation question? Want help with research? Need to reach us from off campus? Ask us! You can email, text or chat with us live during our posted open hours.
Oxford College Library staff are available for remote Research Consultations via phone, email or a video conferencing software (e.g. Zoom). Use The Booking Portal to set up an appointment, and a librarian will contact you.
Faculty members that have upcoming library instruction sessions will be contacted by a librarian to discuss ways in which instruction can be offered remotely. If you would like to schedule remote library instruction, please contact your Personal Librarian or fill out the Library Instruction Request Form. The Remote Library Instruction guide outlines remote library instruction resources.
FREE ACCESS TO EBOOKS:
E-book vendors and academic publishers are temporarily expanding their accessibility, and we will update the list as we learn about more offerings.
HathiTrust and Library of Congress
FREE ACCESS TO MORE BOOKS AND JOURNALS, NO WAITLIST:
The Emory Libraries offer a vast array of digital resources that are available remotely. A few examples are listed below.
Use the following for streaming services: Kanopy for a variety of films including documentaries and biographies.
MetOpera and Naxos Video Library for access to opera, classical music, ballet, and concerts; Academic Video Online and Film Platform for national and international documentaries; Ambrose Video for BBC Shakespeare; and SWANK Digital Campus for Course Reserves. Contact Library Staff with any questions.
We can electronically deliver journal articles from other libraries directly to you at no charge. But first be sure to check the Online Resources on the left side of this page. Many publications have become freely accessible during the Covid-19 crisis.
You can also renew your books online–just log into Your Library Account. You will see your active loans displayed on the Loans section. Select the title you need to renew and click Renew selected. You can also renew all your active loans by selecting Renew All.
Books and media, including Interlibrary Loan materials, should be returned when the library reopens. We understand that this is a special situation, and special considerations have been made as follows:
All due dates for materials currently on loan from any Emory library will be extended through May 11, 2020. Patrons are asked to keep any items now in their possession until further notice. All fines and late fees incurred between March 11 - May 11, 2020 will be waived.
Please email OX-LIBRARYSTAFF@LISTSERV.CC.EMORY.EDU for questions or additional assistance.
