On campus users of the Welder Library must register their Mcard at the Circulation Desk. Users will establish a 4 digit PIN to allow them to borrow books and media from Welder Library. Online students must use our interlibrary loan service (ILLIAD) to borrow materials from Welder Library, or any other library for that matter.
To search the collections of the Welder Library, go to the Central Dakota Library Network screen, and use the search box to find books or media relevant to your research. Should you find a desired item, open the record by clicking on the title, and at the bottom of the record note whether the item is available in Welder Library or a Central Dakota Library Network Library. If the item is in Welder Library, on campus students must go to the library to get it. You will need to bring your Mcard to check it out. If the item is not located in the Welder Library, but located at a Central Dakota Library Network library, on campus students and faculty may request it by clicking on "Place Hold." That will take you to a logon box where the 14 digit bar code number on the back of your Mcard and your PIN must be entered. That will generate a request for the item and it will be transported by courier to Welder Library for you to pick up. You will receive a text message or email once the item is ready for pickup at the Circulation Desk.
Again, online students wanting to borrow materials from Welder Library must submit a request for specific books or media using our interlibrary loan service, ILLIAD.
On campus students may check out these books.
Reference books stay in the library, but students are allowed to photocopy/scan if needed.
