Library Updates due to COVID-19 Closures

All branches of the University of Texas Libraries, including the Perry-Castañeda Library, are closed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. We are unable to provide access to the print collections. 

However, library staff are working hard from home to continue our services. Gina Bastone, the English Librarian, is available for:

  • Research consults via Zoom
  • Questions over email
  • Library purchase requests for ebooks only. (We are not buying new print books at this time.)

For the most up-to-date information about library services, please check the Libraries Service Continuity guide.

Additionally, many publishers and database vendors have temporarily opened their online content to us. Please see this guide about temporary access for details.
