McFarlin Library opened in 1930 with additions added in 1966, 1979 and 2009. It's a wonderfully challenging building to navigate.
Self-service copiers are located on the Intermediate and Lower Levels of the McFarlin west wing. Copies are $.10/page. A change machine is available next to the copier on the Intermediate Level.
Free scanners are available on either side of the main stairwell on the Lower Level.
McFarlin Library's bookstacks are currently closed to the public due to the COVID-19 pandemic. 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).
