Cirulation is the primary function of the Library and encompasses the activities centered around the lending of the library's materials to its patrons. It is the terminology used to reference the library's duty to facilitate and monitor the circulation of materials from its collection.

Inman E. Page Library practices the policy of Open Stacks; a stack refers to the shelving in which the majority of the library's circulating materials are kept. In practicing a policy of open stacks any of the patrons of the library can enter into the space, without identification, where these circulating materials are kept to retrieve materials; however, to check out the materials patrons need to present their idenfication and/or a library card.
