USML Library Closure During COVID-19 Health Crisis


 In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the USML Library has created a new    webpage dedicated to electronic resources that have become freely available during this time.  Click the graphic to view our newest academic e-resources. 


The USML Library’s physical facilities are now fully closed without any onsite staff support until further notice.  This means that patrons will not be able to access or acquire any of the Library’s print resources at this time.  All of the Library’s electronic resources and services, however, including databases, web sites, eBooks, and eJournals, will continue to be accessible to USML students, faculty, and staff. 

Library staff will continue to work remotely and are available to address library-related issues.  If you have any questions about access to and/or use of these resources for your research and study, please contact myself,, Matt Isaia,, or Natalie Jordan,  For questions related to circulation, you are welcome to contact DeAnne Besetzny, or Lois Guebert,  Please note that book and article requests from other libraries will likely not be able to be filled at this time, as most library-lending activities of this nature have been suspended.

The USML Library is committed in accord with the University’s stated position to do all we can to support and assist seminarians, graduate students, and the students of the Institutes in successfully completing this semester, even when our physical spaces are closed.  Please check back with us for updates on when we will be reopened.  We appreciate your patronage and support. 

Thank you and all good wishes during this time.
