Library Hours: May 28 - Aug 31: 8am - Midnight

Getting Library Materials

The library has an extensive collection of print and microform materials. For detailed information on how to find library materials, follow the links below.

Getting Help

The Reference Desk is on Sub-1. It is staffed from 9am - midnight when school is in session and from 9am - 6pm during interims. Reference staff members are here to help you identify the materials you need, determine if the library owns those materials and help you use them. Professional librarians are scheduled on the desk in Fall and Winter terms: M-W, 10-8pm; Th-Fr, 10-5pm; and Sun, 2-6pm; and in Spring and Summer time: M-F, 10-5pm.

The Circulation Desk is on Sub-2. It is staffed whenever the library is open. Circulation staff there will help you locate books or microforms once you have determined that the library owns them. 

Re-Shelving Books

Each day our shelving staff pick up and re-shelve books on tables, in the copier rooms, or left in carrels (they will only re-shelve books from carrels if they are not checked out) as well as returned library books on carts and in book drop boxes. Most books are re-shelved within 24 hours of pick up.

Notes asking shelving staff to leave books lying unattended on tables are not honored.

If you need to have books held for you while you leave the library, take them to the Circulation Desk and ask that they be put on hold, or check them out to your carrel.

Distribution Room

Room S-219 is the shelving distribution room. When our shelving staff pick up books to be re-shelved, they are first collected in this room. If you are looking for a book that is not where it should be on the shelf, the Distribution Room is a good place to check. This room is always open and we encourage you to come in and check for any materials you may need while they are on their way to being re-shelved. If you find what you need here, you may remove it to use it, and then simply leave it on a table or a book cart to be re-shelved.
