About the Circulation Services Division

The Circulation Services Division is responsible for providing direct services to Library patrons. Some of the tasks performed by staff in this Division include circulating material to patrons; processing reserve items and making them available to faculty and students; and maintaining the shelving accuracy of the Firestone Library and Forrestal Annex collections. The library patron is the focus of the mission and excellent service to patrons is the goal of all Circulation Services Division activities.
