The Circulation Desk is the primary point of contact for many library services. There are over 147,000 volumes available for check out. Among these books is a comprehensive collection by and about Africans and African Americans.

Materials may be checked out for a loan period of two weeks with two possible renewals. Overdue materials are subject to a ten cent per day fine.

Users must present valid identification for check-out privileges.

General circulation of library materials will cease approximately three weeks before the end of the semester in order to do an inventory of library materials. Overnight or 24-hour check-out is available up until one week before final examinations. Overnight check-out is at the discretion of the Circulation staff.
