As a reminder, the Bartle Library 3rd Floor collection will be moved to an off-site location starting April 12 (new date) – see March 1 update. These items will not be accessible until they are scheduled to return to the Science Library ground floor from October 2021-January 2022.

We strongly encourage you to check out any books by April 9 that you may need for teaching, courses and research during the rest of the spring as well as for Summer and Fall 2021. 

While the collection is off-site and inaccessible, you can request books you need during this time through our interlibrary loan (ILL) service.  We are often able to make them available within one week (and if available from another SUNY, it may be within 2-3 days).

Faculty can submit early requests for Fall 2021 Course Reserves or ask that 3rd floor books be placed on hold for fall if not certain yet about which books will be assigned in your course. Submit requests by using this Google form. Contact Course Reserves at if you have any questions.
