Transfer Students' Library Guide

What's In This Guide

Hello transfer student and welcome to Buley Library!

Freshmen receive a workshop on using the library. This guide exists to make sure you have the same advantages when conducting research or writing a paper. It contains information on how to book a study room; find articles, books, and videos; request books and articles through SouthernSearch and Interlibrary Loan; find the librarian for your subject; find the library hours; print and more.

Hoot Loot

You will need your Hoot Loot card (student ID card) in order to print or check out books. To load money on the card, you can use the Hoot Loot machine opposite the Check Out Desk or deposit money online.

Please note that the Hoot Loot machine does not accept coins and there is nowhere in the building to break a bill.
