Many of Gordon Library's books are available digitally, but you may need/want to access print books as well. While WPI is in Stay in Place/Alert Level Yellow Status, the library will be offering curbside pickup for print books.
Curbside service: Faculty, students, and staff who need to borrow print books from the library, or who are picking up books received through interlibrary loan, can do so through our no-contact curbside service. Beginning Friday, January 15, books can be requested for curbside pick-up through the library’s online catalog. You will receive a confirmation email when your items are ready, and you can contact us at 508-831-5410 to schedule your pick-up, Monday – Friday, between 10am and 2pm.

Home delivery: For faculty and students unable to visit the campus in person during this time, wherever possible we will continue to offer delivery of library materials to home addresses. Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you need this service.
