My student group would like to fundraise/advertise/etc. in the library. How do I set this up?

Contact the library director, Pete Gilbert. He will review your request and arrange for a table, chairs, and any additional equipment to be available if your request is approved.

How can I renew my library materials?

Log in to your library account to renew your materials online. You may have to contact the circulation desk in certain cases. Interlibrary loan items may be renewed by requesting a renewal in your Interlibrary Loan account.

Can I access the library's databases off campus?

Yes- most of them! Current faculty, staff and students can access electronic library resources from off campus. To do this, you'll need to go log in through a proxy server. See our connecting from off campus page for more information.

How long can I check out a book?

● Current students can check out books and scores for 28 days.
● Faculty and staff get an end of the school year loan period.
● For all current students, faculty, and staff, DVDs and CDs can be checked out for 14 days, and video games for 3 days. For more information, see our circulation page.
● Library materials can be renewed by logging in to your library account.

Is wireless Internet access available at the Mudd Library?

Wireless access is available across campus for Lawrence University faculty, staff and students. For information on how to connect to the network, see the page, Connecting to the LU Network. Access for visitors may be provided on a case-by-case basis (e.g., for visiting parents) at the reference desk by the reference librarian on duty.

I'd like the library to buy something, can I suggest a book/movie/score/CD?

Does the library have a fax machine that I can use?
