(last update 8/25) : The college's "Ready Checklist: Students" webpage has links related to all of students' technology questions and more! This includes links to request a laptop or WiFi hotspot.
Our regular system of reserves (textbooks handled and photocopiers touched by many people throughout the day, people crowded into an enclosed space) is not safe to reopen. Because we know you need your required texts, we've reached out to your professors to ask them to help us enable them to upload readings into Blackboard. Ask your professor if they've already contacted us to arrange for the scanning of readings so that they can include them in Blackboard.
If you want to search for other options (other libraries, or less expensive textbook vendors), please see our textbook-hunting advice page.
There will be no overdue fines for any item checked out since March 2020, and all loans have been automatically renewed. (Any fines that existed before March 2020 will be handled on a case by case basis - please contact firstname.lastname@example.org if this applies to you).
However, if you would like to return your book, as of Nov 23 you can do so (by appointment only) - click here for details.

Update: to read an ebook or online article, the links that used to say "full text available" now say "available online." Click on "available online" and you'll get a list like this example (it shows the databases that have your book/article).
