Requesting the Library to Buy Materials

Your suggestions are extremely important to keep the library collection current and relevant to the curriculum. To request materials, contact the librarian.

Library Orientations

Please let us know if you would like a library orientation for your students. In one class period they learn the basics of using the library and multiple resources for researching any topic. And, of course, you will learn tips too! Call 612-2020 or 612-2019.

The library staff will work in advance to customize orientations to reflect your subject content. Literary criticism, business, science and health sources, biography, and social issues are examples of ways to focus presentations.

The library has many useful and efficient databases with full tests periodical articles that are available to students and staff from on campus and home.

Please make advanced arrangements with the library staff if you wish to bring a class to the library for orientations or class research.

Reserve Collection

Reserve materials are kept at the circulation desk for student use. Add materials for your classes by bringing them to the circulation desk.

Reserve materials are supplementary readings and sometimes text books that are available to your students for use in the library. The check-out times are limited, usually one hour.

Interlibrary Loan

UACCB Library participates in the Arkansas Libraries Online Network (Al@n), which allows access to material statewide. Patrons may request books, magazine articles and other information not available in the UACCB Library (allow about one week to receive requests). The check out time for the borrowed ILL books is the same as the regular UACCB book check out, two weeks.
