COVID-19 has challenged us in many ways. During the pandemic, have you recorded, photographed or written down your own outlook on the events? Everybody living through these times has a story to tell, and we want to help preserve yours.

""

In order to streamline Interlibrary Loan (ILL) services and provide an easier ILL experience for our users, the UAB Libraries is changing the way you access your ILL account. Beginning on September 1, 2020, all ILL requests must be made through the UAB Libraries ILL website. This will allow all UAB users to access their ILL account from a single website and eliminate the need to maintain multiple ILL accounts.

""

UAB Libraries is looking to gather stories in a variety of formats (written accounts, video and audio recordings, digital photos, artwork, etc.) from the UAB community about experiences navigating life during COVID-19.

""

UAB Libraries is introducing its new Retrieval and Curbside Service. Members of the UAB community may submit a request form for circulating items to be pulled and delivered curbside. Library staff will be available to confirm and process your request Tuesdays and Thursdays from 10 am thru 1 pm.

For further information please contact Michael S. Fitts at fitts@uab.edu and/or 205-934-5442.

UAB Campus VPN is not needed to access library resources, and in some cases, it prevents access. If you are experiencing access issues and using the VPN, please disable the VPN, clear your cache, and try the link again.

If you still cannot access the resource, please contact us through one of our online support services.

UAB Libraries have added a new list of frequently asked questions for users in response to the new measures being taken by the university to stop the spread of COVID-19.

""

While the library building may be closed, we are still providing many of our services online.

""

Please be advised that the practice of social distancing is being encouraged to help slow the spread of COVID-19. Therefore, UAB Libraries will temporarily suspend usage of study rooms (both group and individual) from Saturday, March 14, through Sunday, March 22, at which time we will reassess. Prior to reopening the rooms, we will work with Building Services to ensure the areas are cleaned.

""

The virtual reality studios in Sterne Library and Lister Hill Library will be closed from Monday, March 16 through Tuesday, March 24.

Parkinson’s disease (PD) has traditionally been associated with a particular demographic, but UAB Libraries Assistant Dean for User Access and Diversity, Michael S. Fitts, is all too aware of the barriers that arise when someone outside that stereotype begins presenting symptoms of the disease.

The Sterne Library’s first floor quiet zone is changing!
