Visit the Circulation Desk to borrow materials from the library—including books, DVDs, CDs, equipment, locker keys, and more. This is also where you’ll pick up reserve items or Interlibrary Loans.
The stacks are open! Patrons can browse the stacks and take books to the circulation desk to check them out. The paging service from fall and spring is no longer available. Thesis carrels will be available starting the week of September 20th. The library is still closed to Community Guest Borrowers.

Lockers and Carrels
Lockers are available to all students, faculty, and staff. The keys can be checked out for a semester at a time.
Thesis carrel keys will be available starting the week of September 20th. Stay tuned for more information.
Most material borrowed from the library can be renewed, often multiple times. To renew an item, login to your My MIDCAT account. Please note that renewing only works if done before an item is overdue.
Material can be returned to the Circulation Desk in the Davis Family Library or Armstrong Library. If the library is closed, materials can be returned in a drop box:
- Davis Family Library vestibule, just to the left as you enter the front doors
- Davis Family Library, on the back wall facing Storrs Avenue, next to the garage door
- Armstrong Library, next to the front doors
