Library

Are you struggling with teaching, learning, or working remotely? If so, the Library and IT Department can help!

The Library and IT Department has a wide range of tools and services available to faculty, staff and students for teaching, learning, and working remotely or in a hybrid environment.

Still, it can be confusing and overwhelming to know what technology to use and how to best communicate with people both on- and off- campus.

Consult the Teaching, Learning, and Working Remotely website at https://go.ursinus.edu/workingremotely for resources and advice.

On this website, you will find numerous tutorials and recorded training sessions, detailed instructions, a section dedicated to student learning, and information on how to contact Library and IT staff. 

Tech Support continues to be available via email (techsupport@ursinus.edu), telephone (610-409-3789), and walk-up service at the Learning Curve in the Myrin Library for all your technology-related needs. If you are experiencing difficulties during a live class session or another urgent matter, please call them as opposed to emailing them to get a timely response.  

The Myrin Library has reopened for the Fall semester to current Ursinus students, faculty, and staff. The library hours are subject to change in line with the college’s re-opening plans. You can keep up to date by visiting www.ursinus.edu/library.

The librarians are available for virtual consultations and virtual class workshops. You can contact them by emailing library@ursinus.edu or your specific library liaison.

If your students are working on digital projects (e.g. creating a website, a podcast, a video), encourage them to make an appointment to meet virtually with a DLA Fellow at https://go.ursinus.edu/DLAFellow. The DLA Fellow can help students choose a specific digital tool, learn how to use the digital tool, and troubleshoot any issues that arise. 

Regardless of where you are working, remember that Library and IT is here and ready to help you have a successful Fall 2020 semester!
