This is where you will find a faculty librarian to assist you in your research. The reference desk is staffed most, but not all hours the library is open.
You can call the reference desk at 570-422-3594. You can also e-mail individual librarians. From the library's home page, you can initiate a chat session all times the reference desk is staffed.
The Circulation Desk, which is located near the main entrance on the first floor of Kemp Library, is responsible for checking out all materials in the library, including course reserves and laptops. These policies cover borrowing and loan privileges as well as fines, fees, and all other library charges that users of the library may incur. They are formulated to facilitate access to materials and services in Kemp Library while concurrently protecting the library’s collections.
Your University issued ID card is your library card. The barcode number on the reverse side is your borrower ID. ESU alumni, Friends of the Library, and full time Monroe County educators are eligible to receive courtesy cards, issued by the Access Services Department. Certain materials may only be signed out by ESU students, staff and faculty. These include, but may not be limited to reserve materials and laptops.
You must have your ID card to borrow materials, including reserve items and laptops. Reserve materials and laptops may only be signed out to ESU students, staff and faculty.
All items taken out with your ID card are the responsibility of the cardholder. If your card is lost or stolen, please notify the Circulation Desk as soon as possible so that the card can be blocked from use.
The library reserves the right to suspend the borrowing privileges of anyone abusing library policies and privileges.
