Returning Laptops, Wi-Fi Hotspots, and Library Books
Laptops and Wi-Fi Hotspot Drop-Off
Please call 319-296-4006 if you need to arrange to return a laptop or hotspot to the Library.
If you are registered for a summer class contact the library and we will discuss extending the due date for the device.
Please return library books to the book drop located at the Library's north entrance. Look for the large sign on the right side of the building for the book drop's location.
Return your Hawkeye Library books to any of your local public libraries in your community or a college or university library (UNI, Wartburg, University of Iowa, Iowa State University, etc.) and the other library will return the items to us.
Daily overdue fines are not charged for library books; however, if you never return the items you have checked out you will eventually be billed for the items.

Potential WI-FI Access at Area Public Libraries
The Iowa Library Association has announced that some public libraries may be allowing their Wi-Fi signals to be accessed in their parking lots. There is no guarantee that access will be available, but contact your local public libraries to inquire.
Single-Sign On Is Here
The Library is implementing single-sign on authentication for our library resources in January. Login once with your Hawkeye username and password and you should be logged into all library resources. This will allow you to save articles to your EBSCO, ProQuest and Gale accounts, etc. and access content quicker and easier.
Faculty members, you will need to update a few embed codes for streaming videos and permalinks to e-books or journal articles that you might have posted in Canvas, but the library staff can help if needed.
