The UVM Libraries are working to provide trials to select resources and to expand access to some of our current online holdings for UVM affiliates, as well as promoting open access resources. Together, these resources provide access to a large number of the books on our physical shelves.

Howe Library, Dana Medical Library, and Silver Special Collections Library buildings are closed, but essential services remain available, including research assistance, reference help, instructional services, and scanning and document delivery service.
