Circulation & Reference Services

Located directly across from the Young Library entrances on the First Floor, the Ask Us Desk offers UK Libraries users with a single service point for all of their needs. Stop by and ask us anything! If we can’t answer your question immediately, we can connect you with someone who can. Librarians at the desk can help you:

Ask about our new Smart Locker Service enabling no-contact, self-checkout for books and other library materials, located on the First Floor in Core 4. Use InfoKat Discovery to request the Smart Lockers as the pick-up location for your desired materials. You will receive an email notification when your materials are ready. Scan your library card in the lockers’ reader, and the appropriate locker door will open automatically.
