Start your library research by visiting the McFarlin Library Website:
McFarlin Library opened in 1930 with additions added in 1966, 1979 and 2009. It's a wonderfully challenging building to navigate.
McFarlin Library's bookstacks are fully open to students, faculty and staff, although the Lower Level stacks are currently closed due to flood damage.
The library also offers a retrieval service. If you need a book or books you may fill out the online book request form. Library staff will retrieve the book(s) you need for you to pick up at the Plaza Level Check-out Desk.
Your TU ID serves as your library borrower’s card. You MUST have your TU ID card with you in order to check out any materials. Circulating materials include books, music CDs, educational DVDs (documentaries, classic films) and popular DVDs (recent movies, TV shows).

Check out times for grad students:
You may renew materials at the Library Service Desk, by phone (918-631-2871) or through your "My Library" account.
Books can be recalled after 14 days. You may ask the Check Out Dept. to put a hold on a book so that it will come to you as soon as it's returned.
Print magazines/journals/newspapers and materials from Special Collections do not circulate.
All TU students have access to the Law Library (MLIC) and may check out most items available there. MLIC may have slightly different policies about length of checkout.
The My Library feature includes several useful functions. Interlibrary Loan materials are NOT included.
Go to the Check Out Desk on the Plaza Level to check out, renew, and return books and other library materials; check out reserve and interlibrary loan materials; and inquire about loan periods. Standard check out period for books for undergraduates is 28 days. You can have up to 100 books checked out at a time. You may renew your books online by using your My Library account.
A combination printer, scanner and photocopier is available for student use on the Browsing Level in the West Wing of McFarlin Library. This device will print color copies. There is no direct charge, but you may need to sign in to your PaperCut account.
If you have any problems or questions using the printer, please feel free to page the library staff for assistance or ask for help at the Plaza Level Information Desk.
