UAFS students, faculty, and staff have priority use of all library materials and resources.
Members of the general public are welcome to use the library. Books and DVDs may be checked-out with library cards from Fort Smith Public Library or Scott-Sebastian Regional Library.
Faculty and students from other Arkansas colleges and universities may borrow Boreham Library books with a valid ARKLink card. Please contact the library at your home institution for instructions on how to obtain an ARKLink card.
UAFS students, faculty, and staff may borrow materials from the Fort Smith Public Library and the Scott Sebastian Regional Library so long as they are currently enrolled/employed and are in good standing.
The ARKLink card allows UAFS faculty and students to borrow materials from other colleges and universities in Arkansas. (Learn more about ARKLink here.) To pick up an ARKLink card, come by the Circulation Desk on the first floor of the library.
Please note that due dates and types of materials loaned will be determined by the policies of the respective libraries.
There is a maximum of 10 items of any type that may be checked out per person at a time. Other limits apply to certain materials.
Most items may be renewed once. Items that are overdue, recalled, or on a wait list may not be renewed.
Ways to renew:
If an item you want is currently checked out, you may put a hold on it online (use the Request button). Library staff will also gladly put a hold on checked out items for you. Once the item is returned, you will be notified via email and the item will remain on the hold shelf for five days. If you wish to place a hold on a Reserve item, please contact the library.
As a courtesy, date due reminders and overdue notices are sent to your university e-mail address. Be sure to check your UAFS email regularly.
