1. We’re moving online so we can continue to help you!
As much of the Luther Library collection is already electronic, we can still help you find and access a lot of the academic books and journal articles that you’ll need for your research papers and projects.

If you have a research or citation question, email us at We will respond promptly Monday – Friday between the hours of 8:15 a.m. – 4:45 p.m.  We are also able to work with you through an alternative format such as phone, text, Zoom or Skype – whatever works best for you!

2. Changes to loan periods.
If you had books checked out from the Luther Library, the loan periods have been extended until the end of the Winter 2020 Semester; if we remain closed at the end of April, those loans will be extended for longer. Don’t worry about fines and fees that may accrue – we will sort that out, and you can return your books, when we  re-open.

3. Requesting digital copies of print resources.
Check on UR Courses first.  Your instructor may have already posted digital copies of your required reading.

For access to other library material (e.g. printed books and journals), please email us at It is possible that we may be able to provide scanned sections of some of our physical items; however, due to copyright restrictions, we cannot guarantee digitization of all materials. Also, please note that availability of scanned materials may change if further restrictions prevent library staff from being able to access the print collections.

4. Stay informed.
