By the students for the students, the Groundhog Library will be something which will allow students to leave a real legacy behind them.
The Groundhog Library provides textbooks to students who need them.
Every student at UD is available to receive books. However, students who are in need will be able to have priority over textbook availability. Qualification in order for students to be prioritized will be handled by UD financial aid. Those students will be able to get their textbooks before all books are open to the all students. Meaning, if you are a priority student, you can grab any textbooks you need before we open to the public. After this window, every book is first come first on the basis of availability. If you need the book, and we have it, it’s yours—no questions asked.
If the Groundhog Library has a textbook you need, grab the book and head to front desk of the library. Here you will need to present your student ID, and the book is yours for the semester.
Students may use our textbooks for the whole semester completely free. However, when the semester is over, or you no longer need the book we will need to ask for the all textbooks to be returned. We wish everyone could keep the books, but in order for more students to continue to benefit from this, we ask that you give the book back when you’re done. Again, there aren’t any late fees or caveats associated with the books you receive. Use them as long as you like, all we ask is that you give them back before the semester ends so other students can use them in the future.
All you require to checkout is books is a valid University of Dallas ID. You will use this to check the books out. Any UD student is able to benefit from the Groundhog Library.
We are located inside the University of Dallas Library. Location for the days of events will be relayed to students when they happen.
Yes, you can browse the Groundhog Library collection before borrowing books. Attend a scheduled event, or stop by the library help desk and ask a librarian to take you to the Groundhog Library collection. To schedule an appointment, email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 972-721-5315.
At the beginning of every semester, we will be hosting a book check out day. During this day our team will be working the whole day to make sure everyone gets the needed books. If you miss the event, you can still check out books. Just ask the front office for our officer information and they can help you get whatever text you need. We will also host a book checkout event before mid-terms for any student who needs books mid-semester.
Nearing the end of a semester, if anyone has textbooks, they would like to donate we will be hosting an event where students can do so. Also, if you can’t make the event, there is a permanent place to donate located in front of the UD Library. It is labeled “Groundhog Library, please leave donations here”'
The Groundhog Library is part of the University of Dallas’ Club and Organizations.
