  • Physical open hours & the borrowing of additional physical items 

  • Inter Library Loan lending & borrowing 

  • Items lent by SCF to other institutions will have their due dates suspended 

  • Items lent by other institutions are dictated by those institutions.  

  • Physical due dates for SCF owned materials. 

  • No new academic holds will be placed for ‘late’ items until 1 week after college activities have resumed.  


The SCF Library strives to maintain virtual services even during campus closures, including: 

  • Access to SCF Library eResources & databases.

  • AskALibrarian Reference Chat.

  • Librarian/faculty services such as instruction, online materials, etc. by faculty/librarian collaboration, as possible depending on the situation.
