COVID-19 Library Services Update: 

1. We've moved online and are here 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 8:00 a.m. – 4:30 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 beginning of September 2020; if we remain closed at the end of August, 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 material.
If your instructor has assigned readings, check on UR Courses first.  Digital copies may already be there.

If you need access to other library materials, please submit this form and we will work with you to make it available electronically or mail you the physical item (within Canada).

4. Stay informed.
