When you are ready to check out materials stop by the Circulation Desk on the lower level with your LakerCard. Return items to the Circulation Desk or the exterior book returns near Jazzman's or the library courtyard entrance by the due date issued.
Borrowed items may be renewed twice by authorized users in good standing. You can renew online through your My Library Account, over the phone (678) 466-4345, or in person at the Circulation Desk. If you have exceeded your renewals, you must bring the items back to the library to check it out again. In person renewals for equipment are permitted based on availability and course reserves are not renewable.
Replacement and processing fees are assessed when an overdue item has been declared lost by the library, an item has been declared lost by the user, or when an item is returned in a damaged condition. Library fees can be paid only at the Circulation Desk using LakerBucks. If you have a Banner hold from your fee, let the Circulation staff know so it can be removed. See the Library Fees policy for more information.
If we don't have a book you need, you can request it from another library using either GIL Express which borrows from other Georgia universities or Interlibrary Loan. These items can be picked up and returned to the Circulation Desk.
If your professor put something on hold in the library for all their classes to use, it will be behind the Circulation Desk in the Course Reserves collection. These items have shorter loan periods so be sure to know when it's due back to avoid a fee.
The multimedia collection includes DVDs, videos, CDs, and audiobooks.
If you don't know how to locate books on the shelf, ask at the Circulation Desk for assistance. You can also view this short video to learn how to read Library of Congress call numbers.
Did you forget your umbrella, flash drive, textbook, glasses, phone charger, etc. in the library? Don't worry, we keep these lost and found items for you at the Circulation Desk. Identification items are immediately delivered to Public Safety, the official lost and found for the campus.
