Borrowing Materials

Welcome to the Library Services Desk! Discover how to borrow materials from Rod Library. We have over a million items in the library and more available online.

Most materials are available for use by anyone within the Library. Rod Library provides loan privileges to students, faculty and staff with a valid UID card, and community and alumni patrons with visitor  cards that can be acquired at the Library Services desk.
