    Materials that your professors want you to read but not necessarily purchase are available on Course Reserves. Check out this handy guide to understand how to find these using the library catalog.
  • ARC: Automatic Retrieval Center
    The Automated Retrieval Center or "ARC" is a large storage facility where older and less used materials are stored in order to make room for newer materials and expanding services. Robots are used to retrieve and shelve materials stored in the ARC.
  • Renewals
    You can check out, renew, or recall an item that someone else has.
  • Interlibrary Loan
    Free service! Items not found at the Marriott Library will be requested from another library through Interlibrary Loan. In most instances books are available within 1 to 2 weeks and photocopies of articles can be provided as quickly as 24-48 hours
  • Pull Service
    Place requests online and pick up materials at your convenience. Request service is processed Monday through Friday, 9 am - 4 pm. No requests are processed on Saturday and Sunday.
