Online Instruction and NTI Support

In order to best support the UK Campus and the local community during the implementation of COVID-19 precautions, we have created a separate Online Instruction Support form to fast-track, triage, and provide specific support for faculty and teachers converting to online and alternative instruction using special collections, rare books, manuscripts, and archival materials.

Please continue to use our regular Contact Us form below for regular reference requests. Thank you!

Note: ExploreUK has 530,000+ digitized collections, prints, photographs, maps, documents, manuscripts, streaming video, and more, available online and ready to use!
