Welcome to the St. Olaf Libraries & IT

Circulation Desk

The Circulation Desk is immediately to your left as you walk into Rolvaag Library. 

Please bring your St. Olaf ID to check out library materials.  Consult the Borrowing Policies page to find out how long you may keep something you have checked out.

In addition to checking out books, the following services are offered: 


Course Reserves: If your professor tells you that they have put an item on "Reserve," you will need to ask for it at the Circulation Desk.  Reserve items are loaned out for a short period of time (typically 2 hours, 4 hours, or 1 day). 


St. Olaf/Carleton Exchange: If you requested or need to return an item from Carleton, you can do so at the Circulation Desk.  


Resource Sharing: The Circulation Desk can help with any questions about Resource Sharing, including placing a request, questions about requests already placed, and returning borrowed items. 
  Equipment Checkout: You can check out cameras, tripods, laptops, iPads, microphones, computer chargers, and more. Check for open hours. 


Lockers: Rolvaag has lockers for you to keep your belongings, located down one floor from the main entrance. Rent one at the Circulation Desk.


Lost and Found: If you think you have lost something in Rolvaag, be sure to check our Lost and Found.


Ask Questions: The staff at the Circulation Desk can help you with basic questions such as how to find something in the library, how to look up something in Catalyst, library hours, etc.
