My last day of work for Spring 2021 is April 1. Please contact me by email no later than March 30 in order to ensure a reply before I am away. I will return in Fall 2021. I will not be available until my return. Please note that the library faculty have not been on campus since March 2020, so we are not answering the library reference phone number nor our office phones.
