Whether you are in the Edgewood Library almost daily or are more of a study-at-home type of student, here are five things you may not know about the Library:

Students studying in bean bag chairs

Librarian Liaisons

All of our librarians have their specialty areas of subject matter and diverse interests.  Check our Librarian Liaison Directory to find their areas of specialty which can help you with research. Of course, each can assist you with your research in any discipline.

Oscar Express

If you are in need of an article or book we don't have access to, we are happy to get it from another library (called InterLibrary Loan).  Students, faculty, and staff have a generous amount of free interlibrary loans they can request per year:

  • Undergraduate students: 40 free requests
  • Graduate students: 70 free requests
  • Faculty and staff: 75 free requests

Article requests usually take about 1-3 days. and books 5-7 days. For more info, see How do I request something that's not available at Edgewood?

New bean bag chairs in the library

Beautiful space

Come in and check out our new extra-large bean bag chairs!  The Oscar Rennebohm Library has a wonderful setting, which includes large windows which let in light and nature.  This setting promotes relaxation and is a wonderful place to do your studies.  Ah yes, napping is allowed!

Relax and Read

We have many of the new popular releases.  Try our Relax & Read browsing list to see what titles we have.

Group Study Rooms

Are available to reserve for student groups of 2 or more. See the Group Study Room page to make a reservation, or check in at the front desk.
