Basic Guide to the Library

Your guide to information about the library and its resources and services

Checking Out Books

The Circulation Desk is located to the left as you enter the library. To check out circulating materials you will need to have a valid university ID or community borrower card. The checkout period for most materials is 28 days for students and community users. The checkout period for most materials for faculty and staff is one semester. You may check out books, government documents, compact discs, records, and videorecordings. Reference materials and periodicals must be used in the library. A valid University ID is also required to use reserve materials.

Community users may check out materials by purchasing a Community Borrower Card for an annual fee of $20.  Please present a current form of ID at the Circulation Desk to obtain a Community Borrower Card. Click this link for more information.

Accessing Physical Library Materials

Patrons may request to have physical library items placed on hold for them. Once items are ready, they will be placed on the hold shelf in the library or patrons can arrange for curbside pickup. View the handout or video below for how to place a hold on physical library materials.

Note: Items requested via UW Libraries Request will also be placed on the hold shelf or curbside pickup can be arranged. 

If you are having trouble with putting an item on hold email us at circulation@uwrf.edu or call us at 715-425-3321.
