If you are wondering if the library has your textbook or other required reading for your courses, make sure to search “course reserves” in our Primo search on the homepage. If you have any questions please call x8750.

Also, we have expanded our Read and Return Collection, which is located in the Library Living Room and 2nd Floor Corridor (near the lecture halls). This popular reading collection does not have to be checked out formally, but we would appreciate it if you returned the book when you finish. 🙂

If you find that all our public terminals are in use, don’t forget you can borrow a laptop. Laptop and equipment borrowing is now located at our Circulation Desk on the first floor. Questions about the equipment may be directed to x8856.

We have several group study rooms on the 3rd floor and two Mediascape rooms (one on the first floor and one on the second) that may be reserved through ReservIT. ReservIT is located under campus tools in MyUmassD.

Students in groups of three or more may reserve group study rooms (two or more students for Mediascape room) up to three hours a week and may book a space either a minute before use or up to two weeks in advance. These rooms are available only when the library is open.
