As of March 12th, main and westside campus have been offering services to students by appointment said Associate Library Director for CNM Renee Goodvin.
Students will have to fill out a daily health assessment before coming to campus to ensure their own safety and the safety of others, she said.
“It is a great idea because we are allowing students to get the resources that they need, but it’s a difficult situation because students want to come to the library to study. Which is one of the main services we provide.” She said.
The library homepage also provides students with the ability to check out books and other electronic equipment like iPads or laptops, she said.
Appointments can also be made through the library for ace tutoring services, she said.
Once students have been approved for those items, they will be directed to make an appointment through the website to come and pick them up, she said.
Goodvin said, printing services are also offered but at main campus only
she added that she suspects the current level of operations would last until the end of the spring semester. As the state continues to move from yellow to green and finally turquoise, there will probably be more services provided to students.
“Honestly we don’t know, we’re waiting for the president to give us the ok,” she said. She added that she suspects the current level of operations would last until the end of the spring semester.
The library has already partnered with campus safety to ensure proper social distancing throughout the library by placing tables 6 feet apart and limiting the amount of chair available, she said.
Goodvin said she was glad CNM was reopening and knows they’re trying to do their best to ensure student safety.
