Effective January 14th the Circulation desk will discontinue the use of date due stamps in your material. You will receive an email receipt with the due date of your material and you will continue to receive courtesy notices indicating upcoming due dates. If you would like to have your books stamped, just ask at the desk. Thanks!
We currently have some people from the Physical Plant working on repairing a bathroom on the west side of the building (Campanile Side). To do this work, they needed to shut water off on the West side of the building.
No water will be available in restrooms, drinking fountains or sinks until they are finished. The restrooms and drinking fountains on the EAST side (facing the union) are available for use.
We will let you know when the water on the west side has been turned on again.
The Library is now on Pinterest! Need a break from studying? Click on over to the Library’s Pinterest page! Check out “How to Survive a Zombie Apocalypse” to get a leg up on the Rod Library Fall event (shhhh.) Even Stephen Colbert and Ryan Gosling understand the importance of what the library can do for you.
You asked, we listened. Stacks materials and Government Documents that previously checked out for 3 weeks with weekly renewals will now check out for 3 weeks with 3 week renewals until the end of the semester for undergraduate students. Material is still subject to recall. If another patron has an item you need just stop by the Circulation desk and ask that a hold be placed.
UNI has recently implemented a new Student Information System (SIS.) When the old information was migrated into the new SIS system, faculty and staff with outstanding fees attached to their University bill were notified via e-mail. Some of these fees include library fines. Because the old system did not notify faculty and staff of outstanding fees of less than $20 it is possible this recent email is the first time you have been informed of a library fine on your account. If you have any questions about a recent "Library Fine" on your account please contact the Circulation desk at 319-273-2462.
If you need to request the use of a wheelchair while in the library, there is a wheelchair located at the Circulation Desk, to the left of the main entrance. The Access Services staff on duty will make arrangements for use and provide assistance as needed.
Need a break from the textbooks? The Browsing Room, located on your right as you enter the library, is home to a small selection of recent and classic fiction, popular non-fiction, and literary journals. The CFPL @ UNI collection, a small selection of popular fiction and non-fiction titles from the Cedar Falls Public Library, is located along the south wall. In the upcoming weeks the Browsing room will also provide access to popular major motion picture and well known documentary DVD’s. Stop in for a distraction!
