      Library News

      • New Mail to Home Service

        Biola students who are currently enrolled in a course may now request library material to be mailed to their home! This new mailing service is intended to serve students who cannot come to campus to pick up material. See Biola Library Pick-up Service for more information about requesting materials for pick-up. Due to the cost of shipping materials, only items not available electronically through the library will be mailed. Students who only need a chapter of a book or up to 10% of a work can still use Interlibrary Loan to receive a PDF scan within a day. 

        See Biola Library Mail to Home Service for more information.

      • LINK+ Service Discontinued

        Due to the continued economic impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Biola Library regrets to inform you that we are discontinuing our participation in the LINK+ service. We do not make this decision lightly, as we must administer prudent stewardship over our resources. Given current economic realities, we believe this decision provides the proper balance. Moreover, with our campus closed, the delivery of physical library resources is more costly and difficult. If conditions permit, we may consider reinstating LINK+ services in the future.

        Beginning Friday, September 11, LINK+ items may no longer be requested. Users with LINK+ items currently checked out may continue to use the items until they are due. LINK+ items may not be renewed at this time. Materials unavailable through the Biola Library can still be requested through Interlibrary Loan (ILL).

      • Fall 2020 Textbooks Available Online

        The Biola Library has created a list of fall 2020 textbooks that are available as library ebooks that can be accessed by Biola students and faculty. The spreadsheet is arranged by course number and section, so be sure to double check your course schedule for that information.

        Need help? Library support is available to help you access and use library ebooks.
