Locating Books & Other Items

If you've already determined a title or author, consult the Resource Desk for the exact physical location & call number.

If you are still doing research and you have yet to determine what item meets your needs, consult the Research librarians department via the Ask a Librarian options: chat, appointments, & email.

Checking Items Out

Library materials may be borrowed for certain periods of time, which differ based on student or faculty status, by bringing the items to the Resource Desk during library hours along with your student ID or library card. If you need assistance finding items, please ask at the Resource Desk. 

If you are a distance student, you can request all the items you need in Primo through Fulfillment Services (ILL)

Items may be renewed onlinebefore the due date, by logging into your account. You can either "Renew All" to renew all the items you have out, or you can checkmark the box next to each item you would like to renew and select "Renew Marked."

Renewals may also be requested by email, by calling (757)352-4150, or by bringing a proper ID to the Resource Desk. 

ll renewals are capped by the "Max Checkout Length" which indicates the maximum length of time an item can be used before being checked back in. For information on Max Checkout Length, check under your patron type page.
