The University Library's Circulation services are located on the 1st Floor near the interior lobby of the Robert S. Swanson Library and Learning Center.


Checking Out Materials

Library resources must be checked out with a UW-Stout ID card or with a form of ID for community users.



Your courtesy with returning items on time is appreciated.  Keeping library resources beyond due dates prevents fellow library user from accessing that information.  Overdue fees, ranging from $10 to $15 per day, will be assessed for equipment kept beyond due dates.  Additionally, item replacement costs (includes high-cost equipment) will be assessed if there is no response to overdue notices.


Book Returns

Indoor: Two returns are located at the Circulation Desk.

Outdoor: Under the east window at the front entrance of the library.

Equipment must be returned in person to the Circulation Desk.
