Minitex Resource Sharing is continuing to reintroduce services that were limited due to COVID-19 precautions in March 2020. Our primary goal as we resume services is staff and patron safety. 

Minitex staff is following the policies of the University of Minnesota, Twin Cities Campus Libraries. In some cases, this will delay access to individual collections.  

Resource Sharing Guidelines

Changes for Copy/Scan Requests

We will scan up to 100 exposures when staffing levels and access allow. 

Changes for Loan Requests

Most libraries have resumed interlibrary loan lending. There may be a few libraries which have not restored lending for interlibrary loan, or may be experiencing a temporary disruption to services related to the pandemic.

Delivery Guidelines

Minitex is no longer quarantining outgoing materials. Individual libraries are making their own decisions about how long to quarantine incoming materials. If you have questions about quarantine, please contact your local library. 

Contacting Staff

Many of our Minitex Resource Sharing staff are still working remotely. During this time, it is best to contact individuals via email or to use the helpdesk form.
