Briggs During COVID-19

Right now researching is a little different but you can still get help from the library even if you're not on campus. Librarians are still answering phones, email, and instant chat and doing consultations over Zoom. We can get you the information you need so don't hesitate to contact us! 

For more information on using the library from a distance, check out our Library Services guide at
