Archives and Special Collections at Martin Library can be a source of rare and amazing resources. The staff there collect, maintain, and provide access to materials that document the University of Minnesota Duluth and Northeastern Minnesota.
Check out items at the library's circulation desk, located on the first floor.
Renewals happen automatically for items with loan periods of 3 days or longer, but please return materials when they reach their end renewal date. If your item is from interlibrary loan, you can renew through your interlibrary loan (ILL) account.
Return items at the circulation desk, our book drop, or at any U of M library. Interlibrary loan items can be returned to our circulation desk or book drop. Questions? Contact the Circulation desk at 218-726-6120.
UMD students, faculty, and staff are welcome to request physical materials to be held for them if the materials are in any University of Minnesota library. Just sign into the library catalog, search for an item, click its title, and check for the Get It options (when available).
With our automatic renewal service, you should rarely have fees on your record. But if you keep materials beyond their end renewal date or lose something, we accept payment at the Circulation desk by cash or check. We can also transfer fees to your student account if you are currently enrolled. The daily fine rate for materials is $.50 per day for regular books. Lost item charges include $100 for replacement and $15 for processing. Call 218-726-6120 if you have questions.
