Student Check-Out Procedure

During 2nd Week (Jan. 11-15) students are not allowed in the library, but they can still check out library items.

  1. Place a request on the item you need in Catalyst. (If the item is on reserve for a course you won’t be able to request it. Skip to Step 3.)
  2. Wait until you receive an email stating your item is available to be picked up.
  3. Come to the library entrance with your OneCard between 8AM - 5PM and call 507-222-4260. (If you’d like an item on reserve, let us know which item.)
  4. We will take your OneCard, check out the item to you, and give it to you in the entrance.
