Librarians meet with students, faculty and staff via emails, Google Hangouts Chat, Google Meet, Zoom, etc.
We would love to hear from you!

Check out this guide's second tab, Using E-Books, for more information.
E-books can sometimes be found on the web. Some access is only temporary during this crisis.
Hathi Trust provides access to a wealth of public domain books, but Colby has now been approved for wider access in a very limited ETA (emergency temporary access) program. This allows staff, faculty, and students to access/check out one copy of Colby print monographs that have been digitized by Hathi.
If the book has by digitized by Hathi, you will see a “Temporary Access” option. This is available only to Colby students, faculty and staff.
“Temporary Access” books can be read only online. You can download one page at a time. You can’t download the whole book. You can check out a book for 1 hour. Your access will renew automatically at the end of that hour, unless another user requests the book.
