Book return locations

Due to ongoing construction in the area, McConnell Library has closed the book return located on the Main Street side of the building.

Please continue to use our four other book returns, located on the front porch, at the side of the library next to the new CHBS building, and indoors at the Front Desk. Materials may also be returned at the Teaching Resources Center in Peters Hall.

How do I log in to My Library Account?

There is a new way to look at your library account!

The first time you log in, from https://radforduniversity.on.worldcat.org/myaccount, choose Set/reset password. At the next screen, enter your nine-digit RU ID number, or your 13-digit public patron number. Then click Request new password.

You will immediately receive an email from Library Password Management, with a link to a new screen where you will create your new password.

** Where you are asked for User Name, enter your RU ID NUMBER or PUBLIC PATRON NUMBER. ** Be sure to enter your entire nine-digit RU ID number, or your entire 13-digit public patron number. Then create a password, and click Change Password.

Now you will be able to log in to your new library account. If you have any questions, please contact the Front Desk at frontdesk@radford.edu or 540-831-5364. Please note that if you do not have a valid email on file at the Front Desk, you will not be able to create an account following the directions above—so you will need to contact the Front Desk for assistance.

New Library Catalog!

If you’re searching for books, DVDs, or other materials, you might notice that our library catalog has a new look. The important stuff hasn’t changed: you can still search by title, author, or subject and there are still lots of ways to limit your results to be sure you get exactly what you need. For more advanced researchers, the new catalog is powered by WorldCat and allows you to search not just McConnell, but also libraries all over the world. You can save lists of search results for future research projects. You can even get immediate help from a librarian through our instant messaging box. Take a look by visiting the library homepage and clicking on Catalog in the main search box.
