The Circulation Desk assists library users with the location and circulation of library materials and is part of the Access Services Department. The Circulation desk is located on the north side of the main lobby as you enter the building, and is open during all library hours.
All members of the Illinois State University community are able to borrow eligible materials. The Redbird Cards serve as library cards for current Illinois State students, faculty, and staff. Alumni and community members may apply for a Courtesy Card. Loan periods vary based on material type, location, and borrower status.
