Borrowing and Returning Items

Stoxen Library is now open. Face coverings are expected while on campus. You are welcome to come in and borrow and return in person.

If circumstances do not allow you to come into the library, you can still request items via email or telephone or by placing them on hold through the library catalog. We will communicate with you through your DSU email to arrange pick up. The drop box is still available for book return.

If you are quarantined or in isolation on campus, requested items will be delivered to you by Student Life. If you are quarantined or in isolation off campus, we can send items to you through USPS.

We will keep you updated as circumstances change.

Interlibrary Loan

Borrowing: Interlibrary Loan borrowing is available. You can submit requests via email. 

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

We will keep you updated as circumstances change.

Library Classes

Librarians are available for library instruction. We have a number of options.

  • We can come to your classroom and teach using your classroom's IVN or DSU Live equipment.
  • In Blackboard, we can teach live during your regularly scheduled time. We can give a lecture and demonstartion, share our screen, interact with student questions, etc.
  • For an asynchronous option, we can embed in Blackboard and create a YuJa lecture/demonstration recording. A discussion board for the library can be created for student questions.

Course reserves are available. If you are interested in placing physical or electronic items on reserve, please contact Stoxen Library.
