Circulation is a library term that means checking out library materials to users. It is used to designate the service desk where you check out and return materials, as well as the library staff that work at those desks.
Typically, circulation units process returned items and prepare them to be returned to the book stacks. Occasionally circulation staff will notice damage to returned materials and sent those items for repair. Circulation staff also prepare library bills for damaged, long overdue, or lost materials. Circulation staff often are responsible for shelving new and returned materials. Circulation units also provide a lost and found service.
Circulation units have shelving where course reserves, Prospector, Interlibrary Loan, and other materials are held for pick-up by patrons.
