COVID-19 Library Updates

Due to COVID-19, the Harrison Libraries (Allen and Mortensen) are closed until further notice. Presidents' College courses and lectures are canceled for the remainder of the spring 2020 semester.

  • Contact Us—Library staff are working from home and can assist with online resources and answer questions via chat, email, or video conference.
  • Interlibrary loan—It is still possible to request articles and book chapters.

Checked out materials:

  • Checked-out materials are due September 30, 2020.
  • We are waiving overdue fines.
  • Book drops are not available during the closings, so hold onto your library materials for now, even if you are graduating. You can return materials when you return to campus (when sites re-open), or mail materials when it is safe and convenient do so. If you mail materials, please send to this address:

    Harrison Libraries [or Allen Library, or Mortensen Library]
