Library Services During COVID-19

General Information

Gleeson Library has shifted access to resources and services to a remote-first model in response to COVID-19. Library faculty and staff are committed to providing online access to information and research services to students, staff, and faculty during this time of uncertainty. We are here to support you — classes are online and so is the library. This page outlines our available resources and services, as well as any changes in operations.

The Library will follow the lead of the University and update these pages in accordance with USF's Emergency Resources & Campus Protocols. Check back here for the latest library information. If you have any questions, Ask A Librarian.
