Need an item on reserve? Here’s how to get it

We can tell that you are starting to get down to the business of learning based on the number of requests we’ve had for items on reserve. To help the staff help you more efficiently, we ask that you come to the Circulation Desk armed with the call number of the reserve title you need.

“But I don’t know how to find the call number,” you say.

It’s easy. Here’s how:

From the Library’s home page, click on Library Catalog (FLO) under Find Books and Other Materials. Click on the Course Reserve tab at the top of the search box. This brings you to the Course Reserve Data Page, where you have several ways to locate the item you’re looking for: by instructor, department, or course. Choose your search term and click the search button on the right-hand side of the page. Once you retrieve the list of items from your search term, find the one you need, jot down the call number and head to the Circulation Desk to get your item.

If you have any questions, or if you still can’t find what you’re looking for, the Circulation Desk staff is happy to assist you.

Holiday hours Monday, January 19

In observance of Martin Luther King Jr. Day, the Library will be open from 1 to 11 p.m. on Monday, January 19. Regular hours resume Tuesday, January 20.

Welcome back!

Welcome back for the start of another new semester! We hope everyone had a restful and enjoyable break. We’re now open for regular semester hours: Monday through Thursday, 8 a.m. to 11 p.m.; Friday and Saturday, 8 a.m. to 8 p.m.; and Sunday, noon to 11 p.m.

There have been several changes at the Library while you were gone. Here are just a few:

  • There are now faculty offices in the Lower Level, as well as new offices on Floor 2. One of the office spaces on Floor 2 has been designated as a group study room, complete with white board.
  • The curriculum textbooks with call number T that formerly were shelved on Floor 2 now reside on Floor 3M.
  • The video/DVD preview station has been moved to the conference room on Floor 2M.
  • Soft seating chairs and sofas have been rearranged throughout the building.

We hope that you will take advantage of all the Library has to offer – especially now that we are just steps from the dining hall and coffee shop! Stop by, see what we’ve done with the place, and check out our wide range of resources and services.
