Interlibrary Loan (ILL)
The Library will borrow materials it does not own for you to use for free. Request an Interlibrary Loan when you need materials that are not available in the Mundt Library and are not accessible online. Use the “Interlibrary Loan” link on the Library’s home page to request materials.
Reference services support the information and research needs of DSU students. Students may contact the Reference Librarians in person, by phone, or by instant messaging by using the “Ask a Librarian” link on the Library’s home page. Email questions will be answered in 24 hours or less (except for weekends and holidays). A research tutorial is available online by selecting the “Tutorials and Tipsheets” link on the Library’s home page.
Your ID is important
The library barcode ID number (which begins 21578…) is located on the front of your DSU ID card and is necessary for searching library research databases from off-campus. After selecting a research database when off-campus, login using the ID number as “username” and your last name as “password”. In order for you to borrow anything (including reserve materials to be photocopied) you must present your valid DSU University card - so please don’t leave home without it! Library copiers and vending machines are equipped with a Trojan Gold reader for your convenience.
You are responsible for the proper care and return of all of the materials you check out from the library. Please return material in the outside or inside book-drops. Material left on the counter of the front desk can be easily lost or misplaced. When and if this happens, you are responsible for the cost of its replacement.
You are responsible for returning the materials you check out of the library. Our chief concern is that the materials are returned and in good condition. Different classes of materials have different overdue fines ranging from $.05/day to $1.00/ hour. Most items have a grace period before the fines begin to accumulate. Please avoid overdue fines by returning your materials on time or by renewing them.
Renewal of library materials
Three ways to renew! You can renew online most items you have checked out by taking the following steps: 1) select “Library Catalog” from the “Database Quicklinks” dropdown menu on the Library’s homepage; 2) click on “My Library Card”; 3) Login with your library ID and password ; 4) click “Loans” ; select the item to be renewed; then click on the Renew link. You may also renew by bringing the books into the library or by calling the library at (605) 256-5203.
Lost or Damaged Materials
You are responsible for their care and for returning the materials you check out of the library. You will be charged the replacement price of the material plus a $10.00 processing fee for each lost or damaged library item. You are encouraged to make maximum use of the staff, collections and facilities. Use your Library! All the best students do!
