Circulation Department

What do we do?

The circulation department administers the circulation of library materials, media resources, course reserves, stack maintenance, and accounts receivable. In addition to specific areas of responsibility, circulation Department staff is responsible for opening and closing the building, and monitoring adherence to house rules and the general safety and security of the building and collections.

Your Library Card and Your Library Account

For current TAMIU students, faculty, and staff, your TAMIU ID is also your library borrowing card. This card is issued by the TAMIU OneCard Center (Student Center room 128), and must be presented by all TAMIU faculty, staff and students to check out library materials at the Killam Library and to use the licensed databases from off campus.

Borrowing & Renewing

Library materials can be renewed online through the TAMIU WorldCat Local using your student or faculty ID number to sign-on to your Library account. All materials can also be renewed at the Circulation Desk at the Killam Library. Loan Periods.
