Collections | Library Help and FAQ
Does the Library have DVD or CD collections?
Yes! DVDs and CDs all circulate for a period of 7 days. Most of our DVDs and CDs are housed in the Reading Room under the mezzanine on the main level of the library. Please note the location of the item you are looking for in the Library Catalog. Additionally, the library subscribes to a database of streaming films: Films on Demand. These films are also included in our catalog.
Where can I learn more about the CMC?
The CMC, or Curriculum Material Collection, is located on the library's main level — just beyond the Information Commons. The purpose of the CMC is to support the curriculum material needs of students preparing for careers in K-12 education. For questions on CMC materials or policies, please ask at the Information Commons desk or view our CMC guide.
How do I access something in the Archives?
The Carroll University Archives are housed on the second floor of the library and all archival items must be used in the Archives with the assistance of the staff. These materials do not circulate. The Archives has a number of online finding aids to help patrons locate items within collections, and many items have been digitized and can be searched through the Digital Collections.
For access to archival materials, contact Sue Riehl at 262.650.4832 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
What about something that's in Special Collections?
The Carroll University Special Collections can be searched through the Library Catalog. Special Collections items must be used in the Archives with the assistance of the staff. These materials do not circulate.
For access to Special Collections, contact Sue Riehl at 262.650.4832 or email@example.com.
Someone told me that the library has Digital Collections - what does this mean?
The library has an ever growing list of Digital Collections - old or rare material that is now available for anyone to view online. It also includes digitized student projects such as graduate theses.
