After careful consideration, the University made the difficult decision to move to remote learning for the portion of the Easter semester after Spring Break. Spring Break was extended and classes were not held March 23-27. All subsequent classes were delivered through remote learning.
Summer classes will also be held remotely. For more information about the University's status, follow this page.
The duPont Library is committed to the continued support of the research and teaching of faculty and students. Our top priority is to ensure that as many resources and services as possible are accessible remotely. In-person services will be adjusted as needed in compliance with campus guidelines. Visit this page often to check on changes to services, hours and access.

In consultation with the University’s Emergency Management Executive Team (EMET), the decision has been made to close the Jessie Ball duPont Library building to the public. Access is limited to LITS employees.
Starting Wednesday, March 25, Monday through Friday, the library will offer a pick-up service for library materials. To request library materials from the collection, please email the following information to our circulation staff by noon each day. These items will be available for pickup from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. the same day. To make a request, email firstname.lastname@example.org, or call the circulation staff at 931.598.1664.
Be sure to include:
Materials will be checked out to your account by the Circulation staff and then shelved alphabetically by your last name on the book truck. Items will be available for pick up between 2 and 4 p.m. on a book truck on the library's covered front porch. Materials not picked up during that period will be reshelved. If the pick-up time does not work for you, please let us know. We will contact you about an alternative method or time to get materials to you.
Special borrowing policies in place during this period:
We want to remind you about our Overdrive service for easy access to ebooks and electronic audiobooks. Go to: https://sewanee.overdrive.com/ to learn more. You can make recommendations for purchase through this website also.
