Fall 2021 Update

We have made some changes for Fall 2021 in an effort to bring you a more expansive range of safe services and spaces! Longer service hours, additional seating, the return of printing, and many flexible spaces are among the adjustments. Read on for more details.

Special thanks to those students who provided us with feedback to make these changes possible. We really do appreciate our survey takers and respect your comments.

Library Space:

Neumann university library is your spot this semester for getting things done in a safe and socially distanced environment. Neumann students, faculty & staff wishing to use the library will have access to 75 seats. Seats are first come first served and are located mostly in either designated Quiet Independent Study or Conversational Group Study Zones. Additional seating can be found at our computer stations or as part of our Group Study Rooms.

All seating has been arranged with patron safety in mind and should not be moved or altered.

Outside guests will not be permitted to use the Library at this time.

We ask all library users to partner with us in keeping healthy! Please make use of the cleaning products provided to sanitize workstations upon arrival. Masks and social distancing are required at this time for all library users, regardless of vaccination status.

Group Study Rooms:

Four (4) Group Study rooms return for student and faculty use this semester and will accommodate up to four (4) students at a time. Groups are encouraged to use their best judgment and guidance from the university and CDC with regard to vaccinated and non-vaccinated students working closely together in a confined space.

Room reservations are required; click the “Book a Room” button for more details and to reserve your room.

Printing: 

Printing has returned to the Library. A copier/ printing center has been created to reduce overall print costs and limit noise pollution in the Library space. Helpful handouts for new users can be found near all public library computer stations and nearby to the copier/ scanner/ printers. Print-jobs can be retrieved from the Library machines or any other Find-Me printer locations (Open Lab, Mailroom, RAB 1st and 3rd floors). All print-jobs will need user-authorization, so please have your Neumann ID handy.

Check-outs:

Stack browsing and on-the-spot check-outs will return this semester. Pressed for time? Members of our community can still take advantage of contactless pick-up and submit their requests here: https://www.neumann.edu/academics/library/contactless-pickup

Returns:

All returns to the library should be deposited in the book drop outside our main doors.

Reserves:

Reserves will return this semester. Faculty should contact Lisa Schilling to arrange for placement of course reserves schillil@neumann.edu

Interlibrary loan:

Inter-library loan services will still be provided, but users should note that many libraries we are accustomed to borrowing from may still be experiencing service disruptions or have borrowing restrictions in place. Please allow for additional time and/ or contact a librarian for assistance in locating alternative sources, library@neumann.edu

 

Research & Instruction:

Please contact Maureen Williams to schedule research instruction williamm@neumann.edu

Supplies & services temporarily modified for your safety:

  • Supplies such as pens, highlighters and earphones will be distributed while supplies last; Please keep what you take.
  • Food is prohibited at this time.

Welcome back! Isn’t it great to be Re-u-Knighted?! May your semester be successful and as always may you remain #NeumannStrong.
