The Circulation Department is located on the first floor as you enter the main doors of the Paul G. Blazer Library. This department handles all circulating materials, course reserves, and shelving maintenance. This department also houses and controls the DVD/VHS viewing equipment connected in the first floor study rooms in the Public Services area.
Anyone can use materials within the library. To check out books you must present a valid KSU ID, valid ID from any public institution of higher education in Kentucky or a valid driver’s license. Undergraduate students may check out books for two weeks. The loan period for graduate students is four weeks. Loans are renewable if no one else has requested the material; renewals must be made in person. Reference books, periodicals, newspapers and microforms do not circulate. Books and articles on reserve are held in Circulation. Fines for overdue and lost books are also collected in circulation.
