If a desired item is checked out to another user, a recall can be initiated at the Circulation Desk.  The person in possession of the item that is recalled will be guaranteed a loan period of 28 days (or less depending on its item type). Items needed for Reserves may be recalled at any time.  When the recalled item is returned, the requester will be notified.  Recalled items will be held at the Circulation Desk for seven days. NOTE: Materials are not recalled for Guest Borrowers.


If an item has not been checked out and cannot be located in the stacks, a search can be conducted by Stacks. Fill out the form located on the Stacks Request page to be notified if the item is found.


Instructors are encouraged to place study materials on reserve at the Circulation Desk.  Loan periods for reserve materials vary from 2 hours to 7 days.  You must have a current validated University ID card to check out reserves.  Only one reserve item may be checked out at a time.  Reserves are not renewable.  Students should return reserve materials directly to the Circulation Desk to avoid fines.  If reserves are left on study tables, the student will be responsible for all fines incurred before the reserves are discharged from their record. See this page regarding reserve materials for faculty.

Group Study Rooms

There are several Group Study Rooms in the Library that are available for currently enrolled students. Validated UWG ID Cards from two students are required for study room use. Both students must be present to check out the room.


Students with valid UWG ID cards may check laptops from the circulation desk. Laptops are checked out for four hours and may be used anywhere in the library. Each laptop has wi-fi, the full Microsoft Office Suite, and prints to both the main and third floor printers.

Lost and Found

The Circulation Desk is the central repository for "Lost and Found" items in the Ingram Library. Items are periodically moved to the University's main Lost and Found by University Police.
