We know that library access is a concern to our many students who are trying to work on projects. We thank you for your patience as we assess and repair the damage from yesterday's storms. Here is some helpful info from Dean Graham--
"To ensure the safety of our patrons and students, the Library will remain closed to the public until further notice. Important: Access to library databases and online content has *not* been disrupted. Please feel free to conduct research using those e-resources. You can access all of the library databases, e-books and e-content from the Library's home page: http://www.jsu.edu/library/. Although the physical building may be temporarily closed, most of the library's collections are still accessible online. I will attempt to update you with accurate information as soon as word is passed along. The University is working hard to restore all operations to normal. Please monitor the home page and social media sites for updates."

Due to recent storm activity in Campus Inn efficiency apartments, the Department of University Housing and Residence Life is prepared to offer temporary housing to those students whose units were affected. Please contact the housing office (103 Bibb Graves) for your assignment information. If you should choose to accept temporary housing, you will need to visit our office to have access rights added to your student ID card. If any of your personal belongings sustained damage, you will need to file a damage claim. If your car was parked at Campus Inn and was damaged during the storm, please be prepared to provide automobile paperwork, including proof of insurance and vehicle registration. All damage claims may be filed in the housing office today. Arrangements have been made with Campus Dining Services to provide meals at the Jack Hopper Dining Hall for the remainder of this week for those who do not already have a meal plan. At this time, we are working collectively to determine the timeline for the repairs and reopening of Campus Inn efficiency apartments. We will contact you when more details are available. Please contact the housing office for additional questions at email@example.com.
