Gilman Library

Welcome to Gilman Library



 ON AUGUST 7, our APOLLO Circulation system had a computer glitch. It  auto-renewed everyone's items and then generated a message that the  items failed to renew. Most of the items were not due yet. Some had just  checked out yesterday. You may check your account online to see the  accurate due dates. To access your account, click the [Catalog] tab above.  Instructions are in the gray box. If you need help signing in,  please call us at (603) 875-2550.
