Where are the books?

Books may be in many locations, depending on how they are used. Most of our textbooks are on the 4th floor. All books on the 4th floor can be borrowed for 3 weeks at a time with 2 renewals.

On the 2nd floor, we have a specific selection of books that are kept behind the circulation desk in our Reserve collection. These books can be borrowed for 2 hours at a time and can only be used in the library. There is also a small collection of reference books on the 2nd floor that can be used by anyone at any time, but only within the library, and they cannot be checked out.

We also have certain books in our Special Collections. One must contact the library in advance to borrow these books. On the 1st floor, we have many popular leisure reading books by many famous authors. These can be checked out for 3 weeks at a time with 2 renewals.

The library catalog gives call numbers and locations, as well as whether books have been checked out. Location symbols can be confusing. Use the handy table on the Library Locations page to sort them out.

You may take books anywhere in the library for use while studying. Books may be checked out upon presentation of your Jefferson photo ID at the 2nd floor Circulation Window.
