AU Libraries Remote Support: Service Changes

The AU Libraries will continue supporting the faculty and students of Alfred University during our response to COVID-19.

Relaxed Borrowing Rules

The due dates for all currently-loaned items will be extended.

If you have library items in your residence hall and are leaving campus, you may return materials using one of the book bins outside of Herrick Library (at the library entrance on Pine Street, facing the Brick) and Scholes Library (to the right of the library entrance).

If you have concerns or questions, or want to return items by mail, please contact us at

Interlibrary Loan

We are in the process of extending due dates for items currently on loan. Don't worry if you keep items beyond their due date.

If you want to return materials while the library is closed, they may be left in the return boxes outside of Herrick Library and Scholes Library.

For now, we are discontinuing the borrowing of physical materials (books, DVDs, etc.). We will continue to borrow materials that can be delivered electronically, including articles and book chapters.

If you have needs beyond this scope please contact us at
