Access Services

The Access Services Department is made up of the following areas

Circulation : responsible for checking out and returning Library materials, course reserves, notebook computers for students, MelCat and Interlibrary Loan materials. Telephones located near the elevators connect with the Circulation Desk should you need assistance finding a book on the shelves. In addition this area is responsible for maintaining the Library shelving and preparing electronic reserves for faculty.  See the Circulation Page for more information

Interlibrary Loan (Tipasa) and MelCat : collectively referred to as Resource Sharing, these services borrow materials from other libraries for our faculty, staff and students, and reciprocate by loaning our resources for their patrons.  See the Interlibrary Loan pages for more information

Course Reserves (Library and E-Reserves) : service for making articles, books, and media available for faculty and their students.  Physical copies of materials are kept behind the Circulation Desk while online e-reserves are added to course Canvas accounts. See the Library and E-Reserves pages for more information

Archives and Special Collections : limited access resources related to the history and operation of SVSU as well as historically important and rare materials.  Archival collections include the papers of the internationally renowned author Ken Follett among other resources.  Special Collections include copies of SVSU theses and capstone projects as well as rare books.  See the Archives pages for more information

Library Systems : oversight of Library-based hardware and software as well as Library web pages
