COVID-19 Update

Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, the physical collections at Mason Libraries locations will not be available to browse, but can be requested for pick up via the main Libraries' search (you'll need to login with your Mason ID to see that option). This includes print format books, journals, microfilm, and so forth. Our online full text book and journal collections continue to be available. 

During the pandemic, some HathiTrust titles in our collections will be available for your online use. Here's a guide on how to access those books.
