Carrels and Lockers

Carrels

Selected open study carrels, located on the north side of the eight stack levels of the library tower, may be checked out by UNCG students, faculty and faculty for the academic term...fall, spring, or summer.  Carrel checkouts are limited to one per person.  When checked out, a slip is posted on the carrel stating the date through which it is checked out. Carrels without these slips are available for use random by anyone.

Any library materials left in carrels must be checked out to the carrel at the Check Out Desk. A carrel loan slip is placed in each item to identify it as being charged to a specific carrel; each slip must remain with its item. Overdue fines are not charged on items checked out to carrels.  If a carrel holder wishes to take a carrel book from the building, it must be recharged to the carrel holder's personal account at the Check Out Desk.

Carrel loan items are subject to immediate recall if requested for course reserves. Recalled items will be removed from carrels by library staff; carrel users will be notified when material is removed. Items charged for use outside of the building, as well as any personal materials or items of value, should not be left in carrels.

Items charged for use outside of the building, as well as any personal materials or items of value, should not be left in carrels.

Carrels are checked regularly by the staff. Any items not checked out to the carrel or Building Use Only materials (such as bound journals) will be removed and re-shelved. The Library is not responsible for personal property or any items checked out directly to the borrower of the carrel that are left in carrels.

To retain your carrel for next term, renew it online via My Library Account or in person at the Check Out Desk. Carrels are otherwise cleared by library staff at the end of each term.

If you do not wish to retain your carrel for the next term, simply clear it by the due date.

Lockers

UNCG students, faculty, and staff may check out a locker for the academic term - fall, spring, or summer - at the Check Out Desk. Lockers are limited to one per person; contents are checked regularly by library staff.

Combination locks are provided for the lockers; personal locks are not allowed. Overdue and recalled books, unchecked out books, and Building Use Only materials may not be stored in lockers, and if found, will be removed.  Food and drink stored in lockers must be in sealed containers, and if not, will be removed.
