Minitex Resource Sharing is continuing to reintroduce services that were limited due to COVID-19 precautions in March 2020. Our primary goal as we resume services is staff and patron safety.
Minitex staff is following the policies of the University of Minnesota, Twin Cities Campus Libraries. In some cases, this will delay access to individual collections.
