The Circulation Department facilitates the lending of books and other materials to the university community. 

We are also responsible for shelving, locating missing books, and recalling books checked out to other users, among many other vital library operations.

Featured: The McNaughton Collection

The McNaughton collection consists of 200 popular fiction and nonfiction titles, including books on the best seller lists. These titles are located on a set of low shelves visible upon entering the library's main entrance. Every few months books are returned to the McNaughton company in exchange for new titles to keep the collection at a fairly consistent level. These books are recognizable by the light green labels that are on the lower part of the spine and wrap around the back. McNaughton books can only be checked out for a 14 day period.
