Morris Library is open with new hours, required seat reservations and an easy-access pickup service for physical materials. UD ONECard holders other than students, faculty and staff are limited to the library pickup service only.
Individuals must complete the daily health check and will be asked to show proof that they have been cleared to access campus facilities on the date of entry. Adherence to UD Health protocols, including wearing cloth face coverings and social distancing, is required — please follow signage at the entrance. Those who fail to comply with these policies will be asked to leave.
Printers and copiers are not available in the Library; please go to Smith Hall or Townsend Hall Commons to release print jobs.
Whether you’re on the beach, sitting poolside or curled up in the air conditioning, a book makes for the perfect summer accessory. While the summer may be winding down, there is still plenty of time to fit in another novel or two amid back-to-school shopping, course planning or one more summer vacation.
There have been an exciting array of new releases over the past few months—and you can find many of them through the Library, Museums and Press in either print or e-book form.
Everyone can drop by Morris Library to browse new, popular titles in fiction and check them out for 14 days. This means that even if a book is not available right now, it will be back in circulation soon.
If you’re more of an e-reader, we are constantly adding new titles to OverDrive for UD students, staff and faculty to download. If a book is already checked out, you can place a hold on it and receive it as soon as it becomes available.
We always encourage browsing our physical and digital shelves, but with so many options, it can be hard to know where to start. To give you some inspiration, here are a handful of new summer releases that have already made appearances on the New York Times Best Seller list.
