Drive Up Book Drop

 We have a new drive up book drop located on the west side of Gilchrist.  Not that we don't love to see your bright shiny faces, but if you are in a rush we can take a rain check.  


Our Reference Collection has moved!

Reference Collection Location Picture

With all of the exciting changes going on in the library, the Reference collection has moved!  The Reference collection is now located by the government documents on the west end of the main (2nd) floor.  If you walk past the reference desk and Dichotomy, look to your right and you will see the Reference collection.  


ILLIAD is Here!

Our new Interlibrary Loan system (ILLIAD) is up and running as of 6-13-13. You will need to authenticate to gain access. Once you are in you will be able to submit, view and track your orders more efficiently.
