Blommers Library

Graduate students, staff, and faculty in the College of Education may check out books, journals, dissertations, and reports from the library. Other persons affiliated with the University of Iowa may also check out material on a case by case basis. The general public may use most library materials on site but may not remove materials from the library.

Tests in the collection may be examined and checked out only by qualified graduate students who are taking courses in which standardized tests are taught, and faculty members whose field is involved with standardized tests. These policies are in accordance with the professional ethics and standards of APA, AERA, and NCME, and with the regulations of test publishers. Tests from the library are not intended to be administered and the library does not provide any consumable test forms. For further clarification on test use in academic settings, see The Committee on Psychological Tests and Assessment Statement on the Use of Secure Psychological Tests in the Education of Graduate and Undergraduate Psychology Students.

Circulation records are not confidential. If a book you need immediately is checked out, the librarian will contact the person who has it and request they return it.

You may renew material by phone, email, or in person.

Patrons are responsible for replacing lost library materials checked out to them.
