Circulation Desk is staffed all hours that the library is open. At the Circulation Desk items can be checked out or returned, class reserve and other reserve material can be obtained, and one can receive reference assistance. Your Rensselaer ID is required for use of reserve material and the ID is kept until the material is returned.
The Online Catalog lists the books, journals, government publications, Rensselaer theses, CD-ROMs, videos, and archives & manuscript collections owned by the Libraries. The online catalog contains records for material in electronic format as well. It does not provide access to specific articles in journals, magazines, and newspapers. Use one of our many research databases to search for articles.
For assistance, use the online help screens, ask for assistance from the library staff.
