Instruction Sessions

Individuals attending library instruction sessions as part of a UA Little Rock course are encouraged to take advantage of all special assistance used in the regular classroom environment. The UA Little Rock Ottenheimer Library classroom has a computer with assistive software. If attending a workshop offered by the library, please contact the library two to five days in advance to request the necessary assistive technology or interpreters.

Ask Us (Online Contact)

It is not necessary to visit the library for all types of assistance. Simple questions can be answered through numerous electronic technologies. Requests for call numbers, database suggestions, and guidance with library services can be provided through e-mail, chat, or text message.

Obtaining Library Materials

Retrieving Library Books or Journal Articles

The library staff members will assist patrons in retrieving materials from the shelves.

Requests for books and other items that can be checked-out can be submitted online through the “Request” link in the online catalog record.   Please allow 24-48 hours for materials to be pulled. You will be notified via e-mail when items are ready for pick up from the first floor desk.

The Article Delivery Service allows for electronic delivery of articles from the library’s print and microform journal collections. The articles are scanned by library staff and delivered free of charge. Users receive e-mail notification when the items are available.

Photocopying and Scanning Library Materials

The library staff members will assist patrons with the photocopying of library materials. Photocopies cost 10¢ each.

A wide variety of library materials can also be scanned and e-mailed. Copiers on the first floor offer the option of scanning (black-and-white and color) and converting the item to a PDF file, which can then be e-mailed to UA Little Rock or commercial accounts.

Arrangements have also been made between the library and the Disability Resource Center to have large non-circulating library books scanned and provided to patrons as electronic files. Please inquire at the first floor desk for assistance.
