Remote Cowles Library Resources & Support

Resources and services to assist with remote learning and instruction during the COVID-19 crisis


As of August 31, 2020, the library is open with adjusted hours, and our contact-free pickup service has ended.

Drake students, faculty, and staff can check out materials using touch-free self-checkout stations located near the main floor Information Desk and in the After Hours study area near the café.

If you wish to return items, please continue to use the book drop located just outside the library's north entrance.
