Emergency Closing

Emergency Closing

warning The SFC library is currently closed due to the outbreak of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19). The library will continue to provide support to SFC faculty and students. Here is a summary of the library’s services during this school closing:

Reference Services

Library Chat will be available to answer all reference questions. Online chat support is available 24/7 (even during school closing).

To access Library Chat please visit the Ask a Librarian page or use the chat box on the left-hand side of this page.

For help conducting library research, check out our guide to basic library research.


Unfortunately, we will not be able to check out physical books and textbooks during this time. Please note that the library does not have electronic versions of textbooks so students will not be able to access physical textbooks through the library’s website.

Special Access to Electronic Resources

In response to the coronavirus outbreak many publishers and library vendors are providing free access to licensed digital content in order to help colleges with the transition to online learning. We've compiled a handy list of free digital resources that might be useful to the SFC community here.

If you need help navigating these collections, or finding a specific resource, please feel free to contact a librarian for assistance.

Electronic Resources

Off-campus library users have continued access to all of the library’s electronic resources. You will need your SFC log-in information in order to access them off-campus.

You can find electronic resources using our all-in-one search on the library homepage. Or you can skip straight to our eBook catalog and databases to search for electronic resources.



Library eBooks can be found through searching our eBook catalog.

If you need help accessing or downloading an eBook, please visit our helpful eBook guide.



All SFC Library databases are available off-campus. A full list of our databases can be found here

Interlibrary Loan

The library will continue to provide Interlibrary Loan services for journal articles. To request an article use the ILL Request: Article form.

Unfortunately, we are unable to offer Interlibrary Loan services for books at this time.
