As of Friday, March 27 at 5PM, the Library will no longer be able to fill requests from the physical collection or scan portions of physical texts. This move further reduces the potential exposure for library workers, housekeeping staff, and others who still remain on campus. It also helps conserve much needed cleaning supplies such as gloves, wipes, and sanitizer. While ZSR as a building is closed, our remote services and support for electronic resources continue. If you have any questions, please email or call 336-758-4931.

Research Help

If you are doing a research paper and need help getting started, finding sources, or doing your citations, ZSR subject librarians are available to help you remotely. Find your librarian and email them (link to email is in the profile box that pops up when you click on a subject) to get the process started. Lots of help can be provided via email, but we can also chat or video conference with you if needed.

Your Library Account

ZSR Library will not be placing holds on student records or requiring payments for assessed overdue fines before the end of the spring semester. Don’t worry if you have items checked out on your account. Even if you get an automated email noting that an item is overdue, rest assured that we don’t need the item back immediately. Accrued fines will not be held against your student record.

Electronic Resources

Using ZSR Search, you can limit your search results to available electronic resources by selecting the “Show online results only” option beneath the searchbox on the ZSR homepage.

Special Collections & Archives

Special Collections & Archives is closed to the public but still responding to questions via email. Please review the Special Collections & Archives Subject Guides and our Digital Collections for digitized primary sources.

24/7 Spaces

For students that remain on campus, the 24/7 study room will remain open with card access from 8am to 5pm, Monday-Friday, for access to a printer and scanner. The Bridge Help Desk will use the 24/7 room for drop off and pickup of computers needing support. To maintain the social distancing directed by local and state ordinances, the room is not to be a place for study or a place to gather. Key card access to the library is enabled only for students still living on campus and essential employees, and only from 8am to 5pm Monday through Friday.
