The online instruction request form may be used to schedule an online information literacy session or general overview of library resources to support your course in a LMS such as Blackboard. We can host or join your class via Webex or another platform for a live session. In addition, this form may be used to request the creation of various online research aids such as a course guide, customized lesson plan, tutorial, and other services to support your online teaching.
Looking forward to receiving
your request! Questions may be directed to Susan Slaga-Metivier,
Head Reference / Instruction.
Though the Burritt Library remains closed to visitors, it is now minimally staffed on a Monday, Wednesday, Friday schedule. Faculty, if you need any physical books from the library collection, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Materials will be pulled from the stacks
twice a day. Books pulled in the morning will be available for pickup that
afternoon. Books pulled in the afternoon will be available for pick up the
next open morning. The hours for picking up materials will be 9 a.m. and 3
p.m. on the days we are on campus.
Materials will be checked out to faculty
before being packaged up. They will then be placed on a table outside the
library, to the left of the front door with the faculty member’s name and
pickup date displayed clearly on the package. Any materials that are not
picked up will be taken back in before closing and will not be put outside
again until we are contacted with an alternate pick up date and
A cart will also be available for returned
materials. To maximize safety, returned materials will be quarantined for three days and then checked in.
We can also make available incoming ILL and consortia materials that may have arrived since March. Currently, the ordering of physical materials through ILL or the consortia is closed. ILL will continue to order articles.
If you need immediate access to materials in any of these
collections, please contact Dana Hanford (email@example.com)
or Brian Matzke (firstname.lastname@example.org). We
apologize for any inconvenience as we work on this migration and look forward
to expanding our digital offerings in the future!
The Elihu Burritt Library and the Department of History are
launching a project to document the experience of CCSU students, faculty, and
staff during the COVID-19 pandemic. All members of the campus community are
invited to contribute their experiences of the pandemic through journals,
photos, videos, and other documentation. If have any questions or need
assistance please contact Brian Matzke email@example.com
We’ve established a book drop at Burritt Library. (This information is also available in PDF format at CCSU’s Coronavirus information pages).
Please carefully examine the map below. Harold Lewis Drive, off Ella Grasso Boulevard, will provide access to the library’s lower level which is where the dropoff is located. You may return library books 24 hours/7 days per week.
Please note: This drop box is for library book returns only.
After you have returned the books, please email Patti Specter at firstname.lastname@example.org with the title and number of books returned.
Both students did a great job and put in a tremendous amount of time and effort. The library research awards will be part of URCAD which will take place on Thursday, April 30th, 2020 as part of CCSU’s ResearchFest 2020.
