MPL Indiana Room Staff Hours

It's been awhile since we posted our Indiana Room staff schedule.  Staff will be available in our Indiana Room on the following days and times:

  • Mondays & Wednesdays:  12-8 pm
  • Tuesdays & Thursdays:  9 am-5 pm
  • 2nd & 3rd Fridays:  9 am-5 pm
If the Indiana Room is locked, please stop by the Circulation Desk to ask that the room be unlocked.  There is limited access to reference materials when Indiana Room staff is not present, however.  Items that may be checked-out, however, are always available, once the door is open.

Use your Evergreen Indiana library card to checkout materials from the Indiana Room. Many items circulate from the Indiana Room.  Typically, circulating items have a spine label that reads the letter I followed by a Dewey Decimal Number and the first three letters of (usually) the author's last name (sometimes it's the first three letters of the item's title, if there is no author listed in the catalog for an item).  For example, if you wanted to checkout an audio CD recorded by the library's composer, the call number would be I 786.76 BUC, and it would be shelved in numerical sequence--in this case, along the wall shelves on the far left side, by the windows.  Go ahead and check these recordings out.  They're well worth a listen.

Reference materials (usually with a yellow "reference" label affixed to the spine) do not circulate but may be used inside the library.  Special collections, such as yearbooks, rare monographs, vertical files, microfilm, obituary cards, realia, displays, etc., do not circulate. For instance, if you see a book with the call number I REF 977.2513 MOR, then it's a reference book and does not checkout.

Please ask staff if you have any questions or need any assistance.
