Botho University Libraries have transitioned to offering services online and remotely in light of COVID-19. Please send any questions you may have to the central Library email email@example.com
BORROWING AND RETURNS
Books and other physical items in the collections are not available at this time due to library building closures.
Library has taken responsibility to extend the return date for all books borrowed between January and 2nd April 2020 to 30th April for students, and 30th June for staff. Should campuses remain closed beyond these set dates, further extension will be undertaken and communicated through Botho Communications and BlackBoard. Users will be advised when to start returning books to the Libraries.
No fines will be accrued during this period. However, fines which were existing before campuses close remain in the individual user account until they are paid.
ACCESS TO e-RESOURCES
All Library electronic resources are available from off campus. To gain access, users must go through BlackBoard, select BU-E-library services, and choose the E-resources menu. Please see the Electronic user guide for navigating individual databases.
The Libraries’ aim is to facilitate access to information in order to help you do your work. Feel free to contact team members for assistance you may need.
