The Access Services unit is responsible for circulation of the general and course reserve collections, shelving and stacks maintenance, registration of patrons and maintenance of patron records, reserve collection processing, compilation of circulation statistics, and the provision of basic directional information to library patrons.
The Circulation Desk is located at the main entrance to Murphy Library and is open during posted library hours. This is where you check out and renew materials from both the general and reserve collections, pay fines, get change, place holds on books, pick up and return Interlibrary Loan materials, place searches for items not found on shelves, and find out basic information about the library. Lost and found is located at the Circulation Desk.
With the exception of reserve materials and Special Collections, the library operates on an open stack, self-serve basis. Murphy Library materials are loaned to university faculty, staff, and students, University of Wisconsin System faculty and students, and to the greater La Crosse community within the framework of the Murphy Library and University missions. There is no limit to the number of non-reserve items that may be borrowed by faculty, staff, and students of the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse.
