Greetings colleagues,

Here at Tulane, we continue to move print materials from the main library into 
off-site storage, as most if not all research libraries are obliged to do.

I would welcome hearing from you about your perceptions about how research and 
researchers at your institution -- particularly for the Humanities -- are 
impacted by the physical distancing of print materials, particularly 
monographs.  For example:

·  What is the typical turnaround time for obtaining an off-site item?

·  Do you think your scholars indeed receive what they need "just in time" to 
support their research process?

·  Do you think scholars tend not to request an item because it is too much 
trouble, or the turnaround time is too long?

Thank you for any feedback you can offer on this.
