It is our fervent hope that this message finds you well during these trying times. During this unprecedented global public health crisis, your librarians and staff at the Bro. Paul Meuten Library (BPML) continually strive to provide relevant and current information to support the instruction, research, and reading interests of the NDDU community. To ensure the health and safety of our patrons and staff, we have adopted the following measures:
Adjusted Library Hours: The physical library is open on the following days and hours:
|On-Site Library Hours:
Mondays to Fridays: 8:30 AM - 4:00 PM
|On-line Library Hours:
Mondays to Fridays: 7:30 AM - 8:00 PM
Saturdays: 7:30 AM - 5:00 PM
Current library hours are subject to change based on national, local government, and university guidelines.
Limited Onsite Services: Use of the physical library and its facilities are currently suspended. Face-to-face library transactions are limited to the following:
Pick-up of books (See modified procedure for borrowing books)
Returning of books
Clients availing of the above-mentioned onsite services are required to adhere to national and local governments’ mandate on social distancing, hand hygiene, and wearing of masks.
Modified Procedure for Borrowing Books: Circulation books can be searched through our Online Public Access Catalog (OPAC). These books can then be requested and be made available for pick-up at the library during current library hours.
Book Quarantine: Books and other materials returned to the library are isolated and placed under quarantine for 48 to 72 hours before they are back on circulation.
E-Reference Service: Clients may virtually consult with BPML librarians regarding their information needs. You may contact us via Facebook at FB@BPM.Library during the above mentioned library hours.
Document Delivery Service: Request for the digital copy of a part of the book, thesis, and/or print periodicals can be requested through our BPML chatbox.
Database Access and Other E-Resources: Remote access to BPML’s database subscriptions can be requested via Facebook messenger at FB@BPM.Library. Clients may also use open access databases listed here.
We constantly look for creative ways to better serve our users during this difficult period. As such, these measures, along with this document, will be updated as needed.
The librarians and staff of the BPML await for the day we can be allowed to be back in full service to you again. In the meantime, please take care and be safe.
Thanks and warm regards,
