The Circulation Desk is closed for spring term. We are offering home delivery and scanning services. If you have questions please contact circ@pdx.edu.


Laptops, Chromebooks, and Equipment

  • The library is offering term-long laptop and Chromebook checkouts during spring term. In addition, we have wifi hotspots, webcams, headsets, and document cameras available.
  • Laptops and equipment are first-come, first-served.
  • To request a laptop or other equipment, use the Home Delivery form and we will mail one to you.
  • If you live on-campus and are unable to receive packages, email circ@pdx.edu to make alternate arrangements. This option is only available to students who live on-campus; to better comply with social distancing policies and protect our staff, we ask that those who live off-campus use library services remotely.
  • If you have requests for equipment not listed on the Home Delivery form, please contact circ@pdx.edu.

Fines and Fees

  • From now until the end of spring term, the library will not be charging late fines for items from our general collection and Summit and Interlibrary Loan. The library will continue to extend the due dates for books coming due (including Summit and Interlibrary Loan) until further notice.
  • Library staff will continue to check the two outside book drops. The walk-up book drop is located at the top of the south staircase. The other book drop is located near the SRTC building on 10th and Montgomery.
