CORONA Update : Weizmann Library Services (Mostly) Fully Available

by Joan Kolarik on 2021-01-06T13:00:00+02:00 in corona, scientists, students, archive, library | Comments
  • Staffing - Library and Archive staff are able to work from home, so most service will remain available
  • Coverage hours - normal working hours
  • Virtual services, database access, electronic journal, article, book, etc access remains available
  • Physical Libraries - ALL Library building doors are locked 24/7 and accessible ONLY by staff/student card; PLEASE come prepared to follow guidelines for distancing, masks, and hygiene
  • Print books - books on open shelves remain available with self-service loan and return; book requests are available but require coordination with Library staff; returned materials must be "quarantined", so turnaround is slow
  • Articles from Journals in the Weizmann print collection (closed-shelf collection) - see Publications from other Libraries (ILL) below; even if Weizmann holds a copy of a journal, Library staff will try to get a digital copy via ILL before coming to campus to scan from our collection
  • Games (closed-shelf collection) - game requests are available but require coordination with Library staff; returned materials must be "quarantined", so turnaround is slow
  • Equipment (closed-shelf collection) - since Libraries will not be staffed during the latest lockdown, there will be no equipment loan
  • Weizmann Archive - service on-campus by appointment only
  • Research Publications - normal service
  • APC Discounts - 100% discounts from 9 publishers + additional smaller discounts 
  • Publications from other Libraries (ILL) - normal service, with possible limitations for loans from other Israeli universities
  • Purchase print books - available; physical delivery and pickup will be slowed by the lockdown
  • Self-Service Answers to Frequently Asked Questions - normal service
