Community Cards That Are Available
Non-university patrons who wish to borrow Library materials may purchase a Community Youth or Community Adult library card. Library cards are are available at the library's Circulation Desk. Patrons must first complete a registration form and pay a fee of $6.00. Lost cards will be replaced for $5.00. Community Educators may qualify for a free library card if they currently work in a public school in the university's service region. To apply for a free card, please go to the Application Form Web Page.
We have how-to guides, family histories, registers and some microfilm to help researchers with their genealogy needs. Most of these materials concern family histories from Kentucky, West Virginia, Ohio, Tennessee and Virginia. These materials do not circulate, but are available for viewing during library operating hours. If you have genealogy-related questions, please call 783-5122.
Instruction Available To Regional K-12 Schools
We do instruction in how to use our databases and catalog for high school speech classes, as well as tours for KY Gear-up and for other various K-12 school groups by request. If you have an instruction request, contact Sandy Sumner at 606-783-5110.
If you need on-campus parking when visiting the Library, please consult the MSU Police Department's Parking Regulations Page. The section on "Temporary & Guest Passes" is particularly relevant to campus visitors.
Special Collections & Archives
In our Special Collections area, located on the 5th floor, we have materials that reflect on life, history and culture in Morehead and Eastern Kentucky. The James Still Collection, Jesse Stuart Collection, Roger W. Barbour Collection, and the Quilt Pattern Collections reflect the diversity and depth of our collections. These materials are in our catalog, and can be viewed during Special Collections operating hours.
The state of Kentucky no longer provides the library with printed tax forms. All Kentucky tax forms are available at http://revenue.ky.gov/forms. Federal forms, while still available from the library, can also be found at http://www.irs.gov/.
US Government Documents
Camden-Carroll Library was designated a Federal Depository Library in 1955. We currently receive approximately 30% of the materials distributed by the Government Printing Office in Washington D.C. These materials are distributed in many formats including paper, microfiche, videotape, CD-ROM, DVD, and online/ electronic documents. The U.S. Documents collection is located on the 2nd floor of the Library and is open to the public. Most of the documents can be checked out of the library.
