Olin and Uris Access Services Department

The Olin and Uris Access Services Department provides information service and assistance to users at the Olin or Uris circulation desks. Library users may check out and return library materials, including Borrow Direct and Interlibrary Loan, at the two circulation desks. Course reserves for humanities, social sciences, Asian Studies and other disciplines are processed and available at the Uris Library circulation desk.

Other services managed by access services staff include the assignment of faculty research spaces, graduate and undergraduate carrels and lockers, book delivery services to faculty offices, electronic document delivery, Library billing, faculty/staff proxy authorizations, guest borrower services, and services to disabled users. In addition, the access staff is responsible for opening and closing the libraries and monitoring adherence to library rules to ensure the general safety and security of patrons, staff, collections and the buildings.
