User Services: Overview

User Services

The Library's friendly user services staff is ready to assist you! Visit the user services desk to check-out, renew, or return any Library materials, including course reserves. The user services team manages all circulation-related Library services.

Reserves

Reserves are located at the user services desk. Books, photocopies of articles, videos, answer keys, and study guides are frequently placed on reserve by faculty for use by students. Items may be borrowed for short periods. Some items can only be used in the library.

Items may be placed on reserve using the online form (best viewed in Internet Explorer or Firefox) or paper forms are available at the user services desk. Questions regarding reserves may be directed to Jayne Silfee (jsilfee@washjeff.edu, 724-223-6070).

Borrowing / Fine Policies

User services policies are designed to ensure that materials are returned on time and in good condition for use by as many people as possible.

Present your college I.D. card at the user services desk along with the items you wish to borrow. Borrowed items must be returned by the date stamped on each item's date due slip. If you lend your card to others, you are responsible for any fines or replacement charges they may incur. Borrowers must have an I.D. card to check out materials from the Library. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to call our main number (724) 223-6070.
