Print Books and Physical Kennedy Collections Not Available Due to Coronovirus
Due to the Coronovirus health concerns, PHYSICAL materials such as books listed in this guide are not currently available. Similarly, the library cannot provide access to PHYSICAL materials via CSU+ or Interlibary Loan. However, 99% of what Kennedy Library offers are online resources, so you are in luck no matter where you are located! And ILL can still provide articles, select book chapters, and other materials electronically. This guide gives you great pointers on the best databases for your field. And if you need help, don't forget 24/7 live chat help, or you can also contact the CLA librarian, Brett Bodemer, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
