To check out materials in the Teaching Resources Center (TRC), faculty, staff and students must present a valid ID at the circulation desk.

Patrons can browse TRC resources using McConnell Library's online catalog.

Depending on the type of material, loan periods range from 7-14 days with a possibility of two renewals. Some materials do not circulate and must be used in the center.

Books, videos and CD-ROMs may be returned through the book drop or at the circulation desk. Equipment and larger items
must be returned during business hours to the
circulation desk.

Renewing Online

TRC materials should be returned by their due date. Some items are renewable and may be renewed by coming to the TRC, by phone at (540) 831-5832 or on McConnell Library's website.

Renew on or before the due date. Overdue items cannot be renewed online. Patrons must call or come by the TRC to see if overdue items can be renewed. If materials are overdue when renewed a fine will be charged.

  • Overdue fines are $1 per item, per day for print resources.
  • Overdue fines for equipment are $1 per hour. Equipment does not renew.
