McGrath Library's Reference Desk is located at the main entrance. Librarians are available to answer questions about the Library's services and resources. Librarians can also assist with finding research materials like articles, books, and other general information. Help with citations and properly quoting references is also available anytime the library is open!
The reference collection is located near the Reference Desk on the first floor of McGrath Library. The collection includes important reference tools, such as dictionaries, encyclopedias, indexes and abstracts, almanacs, atlases, bibliographies, and materials supporting Hilbert's academic programs. There are also several electronic reference sources available via links on the Library's web page.
The Reference Desk is also the place to obtain back issues of periodicals, journals, magazines, and newspapers.
For more information, please call Krisi Kopp, Public Services and Library Instruction Coordinator at ext. 237.
Books may be borrowed from McGrath Library for three weeks, excluding reference books, which are for library use only. A valid student ID is required to check out books.
Books may be renewed in person or by telephone & email. A book may be renewed once if all overdue fines have been paid and unless another student has placed a hold on it. If the book you are looking for is not on the shelf, check at the information desk. If the book has been checked out, you may ask that it be held for you on its return. We will notify you when it's available.
