Willet Library is closed. There will be no 24-hour access to the building. We will update this page, as well as our social media, with information as we have it.
Willet Library can support your research needs wherever you are. On this page you will find all the information you need in order to use library resources remotely. Any change to information will be posted here as soon as possible.
Please note that access to collections and services is evolving as the college makes decisions about remote instruction in response to the coronavirus. This is the most up-to-date information but with the potential for rapid change.
Librarians will be available for research assistance between 8:30 and 5:00. Additional hours may be available by emailing one of the librarians.
You may call Willet Library at (478)757-5200 during these hours.
To contact a librarian directly: Kristi (478-757-5201), Virginia (478-757-5203), or Rhiannon (478-757-5202) if you need assistance.

You may renew your books online by going to WorldCat and signing into your library account using your Portal credentials. To renew or return other items such as locker keys, please see Returning Materials.
Books and media, including interlibrary loan materials, may be returned to the Willet Library circulation desk or book return. If the Library is closed when you return your items, they will be back-dated when we open again.
If an item is due and you cannot come to campus to return it, keep it until able to safely return it. All late fees and fines will be waived during this period.
In any case, please report persistent problems to us so we can fix them!
