A New Way to Ask Us!

The library has a new searchable FAQ.  It is available through the Ask Us links on the library home page.  Through searching the main FAQ page you can find information about the library, and also ask questions about your research.  Just type a question into the search box and hit Enter to look for the answer.

We are continuing to add new information to the FAQ.  If your answer is not added yet, a form will pop up to submit your question.  The questions will be reviewed by librarians and staff, and we will reply as soon as possible.


Patron Holds

 Effective July 22 you will begin to see a "Request" button when you are in the library catalog.  Use this feature to place a hold on items already checked out, or to request an available item be held for you.  Some materials, such as items from the Youth Collection, may not be requestable.  

Requests for available items will be available within 24 hours Monday-Friday.  You will receive an email notice when your item is ready for pickup.  

 


Kindle Now Available

We now have available for check-out a Kindle.  It is available at the MultiService Center Desk located on the 2nd floor.  There are some titles already loaded on it.  More will be coming.  If you see in the library's catalog that the location of the book is Multiservice Center and the call number is Kindle, then the book is loaded on the Kindle.  The Kindle will check-out for one week.  To see the titles currently available, click here:  unistar.uni.edu/record=b4350528~s1  Enjoy!
