Access Services

Lending DeskAccess Services' purpose is to facilitate access to University Libraries systems, services, materials, and information to the DU, local, and global community. We provide access to these resources through Circulation, Course Reserves, Interlibrary Loan, and Stacks Maintenance at the Jordan & Essie Perlmutter & Family Lending Desk.

Borrowing Privileges

Requesting an Item

The resources and services of University Libraries are developed and maintained primarily for members of the University of Denver community. All DU students, faculty, and staff have unrestricted access to collections and services as well as a range of borrowing privileges. A valid University ID is required to borrow material from the Library. The Main Library is open to the public, and the faculty, staff, and students of other institutions under certain conditions. Please see the information below for details.

The Lending Desk is located at the south end of the Anderson Academic Commons (main level) and we are open every hour the Main Library is open.
