To request materials for the collection, regardless of format, please use our online forms.
In accordance with research related to exposure to the SARS-CoV-2 Virus on different surfaces, we have begun to quarantine all materials returned to the library for at least 3 days. Results from the REALM Project reveal that the virus is undetectable on most print surfaces after that time. Due to this new policy, some materials may be unavailable while they are waiting to be processed. This is specifically concerning for items of high demand and limited availability, such as course reserves. Any print reserve item would need to be held in quarantine for at least 3 days, thus limiting the availability of the item.
If you require course reserves for Fall 2020, we can work with you to try to identify electronic resources. Contact Access Services Coordinator Morgan Stansell to discuss your course reserve needs.
We invite BCC 100 instructors schedule a library instruction session with us. We are offering two types of sessions this year. A General Library Orientation session, and a Berry History session.
For the General Library Orientation session you have two options from which to choose:
For the Berry History session, the Berry College Archivist, Michael O’Malley, will conduct a virtual, synchronous session held over Zoom that will provide your students with a historic overview of the college.
If you would like to schedule a session for your class, please email your liaison librarian. Please include your preferred date for instruction and what kind of session(s) you would like us to present.
For more information contact Student Success and Engagement Librarian Matt Collins.

It is important to note that for the links to work correctly both on and off campus, you must format the URL correctly. In most cases, you can’t just copy the link from your browser search box.
Copy the link
The method of capturing the link varies from source to source. In general, look for something called a stable link or permalink. Here are some examples:

Be sure the link includes the text necessary to let students access the material off campus, or using their cell phone data account: http://ucheck.berry.edu/login?url= Add this text to the beginning of the URL if necessary.
For example, here's how the the url for "No Throwing Popcorn" from the Feb. 2009 issue of Cartographic Journal would look:
