Updates to Library Services

Ongoing updates on library services in light of the coronavirus (COVID-19)

Latest Updates: 

  • The ACU Library is committed to providing services to both faculty and students during this challenging time. The library is open normal semester hours: Monday - Thursday 7:30am - 12:00am.  Friday 7:30am - 7:00pm. Saturday 10am - 7pm. Sunday 2:00pm - 12:00pm. Face masks are required while in the building. 
  • All Interlibrary Loan policies are as normal, including the requesting of physical books, overdue policies, and Interlibrary Loan Probation. We are still experiencing shipping delays, so physical books may take up to a month to arrive.
  • For those who are not able to come to the library, many resources are available in electronic format and accessible from any computer off‐campus via ACU Single-Sign-On authentication. These resources can be found through the library website at https://www.acu.edu/library. Many of our databases are responsive to mobile devices, including phones and tablets. 
  • Should you need help locating specific resources or have issues accessing databases or other electronic sources, you can contact us through our virtual reference service by following this link:  http://asklibrary.acu.edu/. Our Ask-a-Librarian virtual reference services will be provided through chat in the afternoons and evenings. If our chat service is not being monitored, the service will send an email with your question. There are librarians who are tasked with responding to emails as they come in. If you have a more complicated issue, you can contact Melinda Isbell at 325.674.2969.
