UK Libraries' 'Circ2Go' Offers Convenience to Faculty, Staff

LEXINGTON, Ky. (April 22, 2014) — The end of the semester, filled with work, projects and busy schedules, can be a hectic time for not only University of Kentucky students but UK faculty and staff as well. It's also a time for many to renew and return library books. To make this process more convenient for UK faculty and staff during this busy time, UK Libraries will offer "Circ2Go," a mobile circulation service set up in Patterson Office Tower from 10 a.m.-2 p.m., April 23-24 and April 30-May 1.

In the past, faculty and staff could only bring materials to a UK Libraries location to renew or return after their electronic renewals had been exhausted, a difficult requirement for some.

The pop-up circulation station in Patterson Office Tower, where many faculty offices are housed, will allow faculty and staff, including graduate students, to extend their borrowing period, with the exception of outstanding holds or recalls, and return UK Libraries' materials.

UK Libraries staff may also be able to resolve some fines at "Circ2Go."

As the premier research library in the Commonwealth, UK Libraries provides ever-expanding access to quality information resources, services and programs. UK Libraries locations include the William T. Young Library, the Agricultural Information Center, the Hunter M. Adams College of Design Library, the Education Library, the John A. Morris Library (Gluck Equine Research Center), the Kentucky Transportation Center Library, the Lucille Caudill Little Fine Arts Library and Learning Center, the Medical Center Library, the Science Library, the Shaver Engineering Library and the Special Collections Library.
