All patrons are guaranteed to have any checked out item for two weeks (with the exception of media). Items checked out longer than two weeks are subject to recall by other library patrons.
If an item is currently checked out, you can inquire at the Circulation Desk if it is available to be recalled.
Recall Request forms may be filled out at the Circulation Desk. It typically takes three days for an item to be recalled. The fine for overdue recalled items is $1/day.
A portion of the library's print collection, including books, scores and bound magazines, is located in a storage room. Bound magazines/journals dated prior to 2005 will be located in local or offsite storage. If the online library catalog indicates the location is "CIM Storage" or "JMP Off-site Storage", submit a storage request form to access the item.
Storage Request forms may be filled out at the Circulation Desk or e-mailed to the Circulation Supervisor (firstname.lastname@example.org). Please allow 24 hours for the retrieval of the item(s).
Ask A Librarian (Consultation Request Form)
Our Research Services Librarians are happy to meet with library patrons individually to discuss research & writing questions. Whether it's locating sources on a particular topic, finding a particular edition of a score or recording of a work, or creating Chicago-Turabian citations for a paper, we are here to help you. Additionally, librarians are available for questions regarding professional documents (resumes, CVs, cover letters, etc.), copyright inquiries, and other questions you may have--ask us anything!
Use the form above to ask a particular question or set up an appointment with our librarians to discuss your research needs.
