These are library services that give you access to books, journal articles, and other library items. In other words, Access Services get the materials you need into your hands, whether you're an on-campus or online student. This section introduces you to a few of the services; visit Services for more information.

Many books and journals can be checked out of the Libraries for a period of time for your convenience. See the Hours webpage for the times when service desks are open and their contact information. Visit Check Out Materials for checkout periods and other details.
