The Grinnell College Libraries' collections are housed in Burling Library, the Curriculum Library in Steiner Hall, and the Kistle Science Library in the Noyce Science Center. The Libraries' primary purpose is to support the research and study needs of Grinnell College students working within the College's liberal arts curriculum. We also support the basic research needs of the faculty. Our collections contain material in many languages and formats, traditional and electronic.
General Circulation Policies
We welcome two new research tutors this spring: Irene Bruce '15 and Anthony Wenndt '15. Stop by Burling's research desk to meet Irene and Anthony (and our other four tutors) and for help with your research during their afternoon and evening shifts.
Complete the form below to request video and sound recordings you wish to place on reserve. Select the format and whether the recording should be on reserve at the Burling Library Circulation Desk or the AV Center in ARH. The default location is the library Circulation Desk. Complete one form for each course. Please allow at least one business day for items in the collections to be placed on reserve. Since there is usually a sizable backlog of requests at the beginning of each semester, priority will be based on date of receipt and earliest dates needed.
