Fall semester service updates

With the move to remote learning, some LITS services are temporarily different or unavailable. 

We are committed to supporting the continued operations of College offices and the full delivery of the Mount Holyoke curriculum to enrolled students in the Flexible, Immersive, Teaching model (FIT).  To this end, we will continue to prioritize remote access to library collections and technology resources during the 2020/21 academic year. 

The pandemic has impacted the speed, availability and method of delivery of some LITS services.  We appreciate your continued patience and flexibility as we strive to conduct all of our operations in a way that keeps our staff and the MHC community safe.
