Note: This is dated information and may not reflect the current policies in place on campus. Please refer to We Are WPI for the latest information.

March 19, 2020

All Gordon Library services will move fully online beginning this Friday at 4pm.  All of our staff will be available online and working to support you and our students in whatever way we can.


We will continue to provide services including online library instruction, support for obtaining and linking to digital course materials, interlibrary borrowing of digital materials, virtual research consultations for you and your students, and more.


Please visit our web site and choose the link "Remote Resources," directly below the search box, for one-stop access to information about all our online services.


The COVID-19 crisis has necessarily paused interlibrary sharing of print materials. But we are heartened that many publishers are now providing free access to their digital journals, instructional videos, and more, to support your efforts to move your teaching and research fully online. From the Remote Resources guide, you can find updated information about new access to JoVE, Project Muse, ebooks, and soon JSTOR. We anticipate other publishers will be added to this list.


While we had originally planned to open 9-4 next Monday and Tuesday, we will not have staff working on-site after 4pm tomorrow, Friday 3/20.  Therefore the Gordon Library building will not be open after 4pm tomorrow.


If you have any questions, please find a contact from the list of Important Contact information posted on the first page of our Remote Resources guide, and let us know what you need and how we can help you.
