  • Once you're logged in, you can reserve books you'd like and renew the items you already have.

Use Our Mobile App Version of the Catalog

If you're on the go, consider using our mobile app to get access to our collection, and see if we have what you're looking for.   You can use the App to scan a barcode in the bookstore, to see if you can read it for FREE!

Atriuum provides a FREE version of their catalog access app, called Atriuum on the Go.   You can use the mobile version of the catalog without the app, but the scan feature is in the app version.

You can find it in the iTunes App Store or your Android store.
