Spring 2020 Library Updates: Home

General Information

Updated Hours

The library will be open on a reduced schedule from April 6 to May 1. During this time, you will be able to pick up materials from 9:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. on Monday, Wednesday and Friday. The book drop box is available anytime outside of the library for returns. Browsing, studying and using the computers will not be permitted at this time. All Wofford buildings, including Sandor Teszler Library, are currently closed to the public.

 

Borrowing and Lending

The library staff will gladly retrieve books, magazines and equipment from the stacks and leave them for you to pick up when the library is open. We ask that you use this Book Request form to request books from the library collection, and we will contact you when they are ready to be picked up at a designated book cart in our front lobby. This practice ensures that our staff can practice appropriate social distancing while meeting your teaching and research needs.

Sandor Teszler Library is suspending all due dates on items borrowed until campus is reopened. Any fines or fees accrued over the break will be waived. Please return any books to the book drop outside of the main entrance to the library.

PASCAL Delivers and interlibrary loan requests for books are currently suspended. Wofford students and staff can still request articles via ILL using our ILL form

Students and faculty who need access to books that are not currently available should email askalibrarian@wofford.edu.

 

Renovation Timeframe Update

The library collection will not be accessible after May 1 as we begin our final phase of the library renovation. Please request all materials you will need for the remainder of spring semester and the upcoming summer sessions as soon as possible. We apologize for any inconvenience. Please contact your subject librarian for assistance with finding electronic resources during the library closure.

 

Access to Online Resources

Faculty, staff, and currently enrolled students have access to the library's electronic resources from off campus. A login page should appear when attempting to access ebooks or electronic articles. Your username is your last name, and your password is your W number with the number 9 replacing the W. If you have trouble logging in, try these troubleshooting steps:

  • Try logging in from a new browser.
  • Clear your browser cookies and cache, then log in again.
  • Verify that you are using your last name as your username and modified W number as your password.

If problems persist, email askalibrarian@wofford.edu or call the library at (864) 597-4301 for assistance.

 

Research Help

Research help remains available via 24/7 chat service, email and research appointments. Wofford librarians can answer research questions via email, video chat or screen sharing from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. Monday through Thursday and from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Friday. To make a research appointment with your subject librarian or personal librarian, visit Research Help by Subject or Course.

Library Instruction

Subject librarians are available for library instruction sessions via live Zoom sessions, recorded Zoom tutorials and one-on-one consultations with students. Please complete the Instruction Request Form or contact your subject librarian to schedule a session with a librarian.
