Message from the Dean of the Library Regarding LINK+
I am happy to announce that the Biola Library is able to reinstate the LINK+ service for our patrons. In September 2020 I announced cancelation of LINK+ due to budgetary constraints caused by the pandemic lockdowns. I also stated that we would work to restore the service if possible. We then worked with our vendor and adjusted our budget to seek a way forward to restore LINK+. I am pleased to report that we achieved our goal and we are now able to restore this popular service. We hope that our patrons will once again make use of LINK+, which enables rapid, unmediated access to library materials owned by other libraries through the state of California as well as neighboring states. Since this service is focused on lending physical books and media, we expect that it will be especially important as we anticipate our campus reopening in the spring of 2021.
Dr. Gregg Geary, Dean of the Library
