Olson Library Website Update--May 14, 2020

As we continue to process our library resource management system, we've encountered some minor issues. We're working on things, and hope to have resolution soon. 

You may find items that you've physically returned via mail or in person to NMU Campus Police in your account. There are many items that have not been processed yet. Please be assured that we have extended all due dates and will process those items before they are due. No fines will be assessed due to the COVID-19 closure.

Service Interruption

As we make our final move to this new system, patrons will be unable to access individual Library accounts, OneSearch, and our online catalog. This will be completed on Wednesday, May 13.

Please note that during this time:

New Government Documents Available

Government Documents Round Table (GODORT) of Michigan is a group dedicated to promoting the effective use of publications and other information products issued by all levels of government in Michigan.  The purpose of this wiki is to serve as a source of support for government information librarians and library staff in the state of Michigan. We also hope this wiki will serve as a resource for librarians and others who are interested in government information and would like to learn more about it.

Ask Lydia: What do I do with my library books? UPDATE

Dear Lydia: What am I supposed to do with my library books? They're all stamped due in March, but I can't get to Olson Library to turn them in. HELP!


My Dear Patrons: Don't worry! The physical library is closed, so don't try to return them. We've adjusted ALL due dates to June 29, 2020. We will continue to let you know how we're handling due dates. You won't be assessed any fines during our physical closure as well. Our priority is ensuring the safety of our staff and patrons.
