Current Library Services

During the campus closure due to COVID, the CTS Library is up and running with remote services. Librarians and the library staff are here to help you connect to the resources you need! 

Even though you may not be able to come into the library, we are here to work with you in any way we can. Use these methods to communicate with us from a distance.  

Email for all queries or to schedule an appointment with a library  staff person. 

Requesting Books
These methods are available for obtaining print items:

Course Reserves
Physical items on course reserve are not available for checkout (see Requesting Scans or Sections of Books).  However, texts that are required for course reading may be available as an eBook.  Please check the Course Reserves link on the library website or in each Moodle course. 

Requesting Scans or Sections of Books (for current faculty, students, and staff only)
Library staff are available to scan and email pages from books that you need for classes and research.  When submitting scan requests, we ask that you provide as much information as possible about your requests (course name, book title, page numbers/chapter titles). We will do our best to get back to you as soon as possible, ideally within a 24 to 48-hour time frame. 

Returning Items
Physical items may be returned by mail (CTS Library, P.O. Box 520, Decatur, GA  30031) or placed in the metal drop box on the front porch of the library. 

Online Materials and Tools (for current faculty, students, and staff only)
The CTS Library has an extensive collection of online resources.  

Contact Us
Please contact us if you have any additional concerns or questions about library policies during this time. If you have questions that are not answered here or have new ideas for how we can serve you while you work off-campus, email us at 

Remember, we are here for you!
