Colby Libraries are committed to the continued support of the research and teaching of faculty and students. Our top priority is to ensure that as many resources and services as possible are accessible remotely. Visit this page often to check on changes to services, hours and access
These resources while not new may be of interest....
If you have items checked out...
We recognize that many of you need the materials you have checked out to complete your work this semester.
With that in mind, due dates for all checked out and non reserve materials (but NOT equipment) belonging to Colby, Bates, and Bowdoin will be extended until September 9th.
All equipment (including laptops) must be returned ASAP.
If you can return books (particularly books requested via interlibrary loan) before you leave campus, please do so.
We will work with faculty to assist with making necessary course materials available electronically, as well.
Check back often for updates!
