Faculty members may check out Ottenheimer Library materials using their UALR campus ID. The maximum number of items that may be out at one time is 100. The loan period is for the full semester. Items may be renewed three times. All items are subject to recall after 14 days.
Faculty members may designate other staff members or students as proxies to pick up materials checked out in their name from the Circulation Desk. A proxy request form is available at the Circulation Desk.
Faculty members may also check out materials from other Arkansas academic libraries through the ARKLink Reciprocal Borrowing Program. ARKLink cards are available at the Ottenheimer Library Circulation Desk.

The Library provides current UALR faculty, students and staff with access to materials held by other libraries through Interlibrary Loan (ILL). The service is free; however, there is a $1.00 per day charge for overdue materials.
The Library also provides free electronic delivery of journal articles and book chapters from the print and microform collections of Ottenheimer Library through its Article Delivery Service.

The Reference Department provides course-specific library instruction sessions and online research guides. In addition, reference librarians can assist in creating assignments that use library resources. To schedule an instruction session and/or request an online research guide, contact John Siegel, instruction coordinator at email@example.com or 501.682.3536.
The Library encourages faculty input into the building of the Libraryâ€™s collections. Each academic department has a librarian designated as a departmental liaison to assist faculty in building collections to support their instructional and research needs (see Library Selectors). Additionally, academic departments select a faculty member to serve as a liaison who facilitates communication between the department and the Library. Although the Library cannot order every title requested, it gives serious consideration to all suggestions. Requests for materials can be placed via the departmentâ€™s liaison or through an online request form.
The collection development librarian can provide faculty with information about library collections in their disciplines. She can also assist faculty in the addition of new subscriptions, the provision of library holdings reviews for new courses, and the creation of accreditation and other reports. For assistance, contact Maureen James at firstname.lastname@example.org or 501.569.8816.
