In light of COVID-19 and classes being moved online, students and faculty need free, open access to course materials. The TAP Team compiled resources from multiple sources, and will continue to provide service updates here in order to keep the academic community connected to the best online resources available.
USF Libraries – Continuity of Service:
The USF Libraries prepared the “Continuity of Library Services” LibGuide to assist you and your students. We enhanced support in document delivery and ILL, scanned three weeks of course reserves, and more. This guide will help you locate USF Libraries services and other resources that are available during the prolonged closure of USF. Please refer to this helpful Quick Guide for a complete list of services and availability. We are here to help!
