ILLiad is the electronic system you use to request an item through Interlibrary Loan. The name ILLiad can be thought of as an acronym for InterLibrary Loan internet accessible database.
The Information Commons is open 24 hours a day 5 days a week.
Individual Instruction Appointments: Though available to everyone, personal appointments are especially useful for graduate students beginning their research. Schedule a time with a knowledgeable librarian to help you learn what tools and databases are available in your subject. Facutly Librarians are On Main Campus - Contact your subject specialist to make an appointment.
Lockers: Graduate students may apply for one of the nearly 450 lockers located in Carlson Library. The small lockers are located near the stairwells on the 3rd (north side only) and 4th floors. Lockers are assigned on a semester basis, and you can use them as a safe place to store your stuff while in the library, or to keep frequently consulted materials (be sure to check out the items at the Circulation Desk first!) To request a locker, fill out the application available at the Carlson Circulation Desk.
If you are a Teaching Assistant: We can help teach your classes how to use the library, too! We have classrooms in the Carlson Library (some with hands-on computer labs), or we can come to your classroom or lab. See the Faculty Services page for more details
