Anyone with a PPLD (Pikes Peak Library District) library card can set up an account. You can check out up to 5 items at a time. Books check out for 3 weeks. Movies or CDs check out for 1 week.
Public users can only access our online materials (ebooks, streaming movies, etc) while on campus.
If you placed a hold on an item in our library, or requested items from another library, they will be kept at the main circulation desk. You will receive an email when your items are ready to be picked up.
To access an ebook or streaming movie, you need to use the link to view the eBook or streaming film above the Location, Call # and Status information inside the item's full record.
If you are off campus, you will be asked to enter your UCCS username and password.
When you discover a book or movie that you want to borrow, make sure to check the location, the call number and the status to be sure the item is available and so you know where to find it inside the library building.
Possible Locations (click here to see a map of the library):
To find a print book, first identify the correct section of the library by checking the location of the book. Most books are in the "Main Collection" which is on the 3rd floor.
Reading LC Call Numbers
If you are unable to locate the book or the book is missing, ask for help at the Circulation Desk.
When you are ready to leave, bring your items and UCCS ID card to a Circulation Desk at either entrance.
Books (Main Collection)
DVDs & CDs - 1 week
Child & YA Literature - 3 weeks
Popular Reading - 2 weeks
You will receive an email from the Library when your borrowed items are close to being due. Make sure to either renew or return these items on time to avoid late fees.
If no one has placed a hold on your item, you can usually renew it up to 3 times. You can renew items in person, over the phone (719-255-3296), or online using My Library Account (you will need your UCCS ID).
Return items to one of the Circulation desks inside the library or use a library book drop outside the building.
