Use our Request Form.

The Kansas Library Catalog is an online catalog containing books, magazines/journals articles, videos, audiocassettes, microforms available from public, school and academic libraries from across Kansas.

Through the OCLC/WorldCat system it is possible to borrow  books, magazines/journals articles, videos, audiocassettes, microforms from across the United States.

Please allow 1-2 weeks for an interlibrary loan item. We will notify you when it arrives. We reserve the right to charge a fine $1/day for an overdue interlibrary loan item.  Users are responsible for replacement costs of any lost/damaged item.

We are not able to process student requests for current textbooks or required course materials.

More Library Resources

Check out a book? Bring your student ID and the item to the circulation desk and the librarian will check it out to you.

My instructor put it on reserve? The reserve materials are held behind the circulation desk, so you have to ask for an item. Bring the instructor's name and the title of the book or DVD with you. Reserve items often do NOT leave the library, but you can scan pages and print them.

Gadgets for checkout? Calculators, Chromebook, flashdrives, headphones

Scan something? Use the scanner by the restrooms. Ask for help at the circulation desk or use the printed instructions next to the scanner.

Watch a DVD? Ask for headphones at the circulation desk. Most of the computers will play DVDs.

Watch a VHS? The VHS player is in the large study room on 2nd floor. Ask for help if you've never used a VHS player before.

Why are there two sets of DVDs? The NEWER DVDs are on the shelves closest to the front door. Older DVDs (mostly before 2011) are on the other side of the snack table.

Free stuff? Cookies, coffee, snacks, pens, pencils, wifi, printing, scanning, and much MORE!
