Stoxen Library Services for Remote Learning: Home

We're Here to Help!

Borrowing and Returning Items

Borrowing: If you are interested in borrowing items from our physical collection, please email, call, or place your desired titles on hold using the online catalog. We will send an email to your DSU account to establish the best way to get the books to you.

Returning: If you wish to return something while Stoxen Library is closed, please use the drop box located to the left of the outer doors. If you are no longer in Dickinson, please contact the library.

We will keep you updated as things change.

Interlibrary Loan

Borrowing: You can still request things through Interlibrary Loan; however, keep in mind that many libraries are not filling requests for physical items. Digital requests, like a journal article or book chapter, will be easier to fill. Bear in mind that many libraries are operating remotely which could affect wait times.

Lending: Stoxen library will continue to fill electronic and physical requests as is feasible.

We will keep you updated as circumstances change.

Reference Services

Our staff is still available to assist you. You can reach us in a number of ways:

  1. By email. We are monitoring our emails and will be answering you. You can either email the generic library account ( or contact a staff member directly.
  2. By phone. We are still monitoring our calls. We will get back to you as soon as we can.
  3. Chat reference. We are monitoring our chat reference from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday - Friday. Just click on the Speech bubble to reach a staff member! When chat is not available, please send us an email.

Library Classes

Librarians are available for library instruction. We can make YuJa videos, provide guided practice worksheets, embed directly into your course, or host a live session through Blackboard Collaborate.

Course reserves are still available. If you want to bring portions of your physical reserves into your online environment or bring in materials from the databases, please contact Stoxen Library.
