Location

The Circulation Desk is located on the library's main floor.

LIBRARY LOAN PERIODS

Most circulating materials circulate for 28 days. Some items have shorter loan periods or are non-circulating.

RENEWAL PERIODS

Most materials, if not needed by someone else, may be renewed. Renewals can be done in person with your Pioneer Passport, over the telephone by calling 608.342.1679, or by accessing your personal circulation record, My Account in Search@UW.

HOLD/RECALL

If a title you need is checked out ("Out of Library" will display in the Locations tab), access your personal circulation record to have a Hold/Recall placed on the item. Contact the Circulation Desk if you have any questions.

The person who has the material will be sent a recall notice requesting that the item be returned. Once the item is returned, you will be notified that it is available at the Circulation Desk or by checking your personal circulation record.

Note: Unless an item is needed for reserve, a recall will not be sent until the original borrower has had the material for at least 14 days.

ITEM NOT FOUND

If you are unable to locate the item you need, ask at the Circulation Desk or at the 3rd Floor Help Desk.  If an item is checked out you can place a hold on it. 

Failure to return library material

Once an item becomes thirty days overdue, the borrower will be billed for the replacement cost of the material plus a per-item processing fee. Two overdue items or a total of fines and fees that exceed $210.00 will block all library privileges. Blocks will remain until the account is paid in full. Failure to pay fines and fees may result in blocked transcripts or other collection procedures. Fines and fees are non-refundable.
