Access Services

Attention: To accommodate for virtual/remote instruction in Fall 2020, the University Library is now the Virtual University Library. The library is still providing services online. Physical items are not being circulated due to COVID-19 precautions. You may still utilize our Document Delivery services to request articles digitally. Virtual Course Reserve services will still be provided. If you would like to return your books, please return at the drive-up book return bin located off of Red Gum Lane.

The primary function of Access Services is to facilitate physical access of library material for student learning through its four units: Circulation, Course ReservesResource Sharing (CSU+ and Document Delivery), Stack Management. The primary functions of the Circulation Desk are: checking out and returning material, managing patron records, collecting fees and fines, paging materials from the Course Reserves collection or compact shelving. Stack Management ensures a quick turnaround time for shelving library materials to ensure the availability of library materials. Access Services also oversees areas crucial to student learning such as quiet study areas, group study rooms, assistance with locating micro-form materials, material from compact shelving, and assisting with pharos printing.
