The Central Access Services Department (formerly Central Circulation and Book Stacks Department) of the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign Library is responsible for the circulation and maintenance of the Main Stacks collection. The Main Stacks houses a general collection of approximately five million volumes. The Circulation Desk and the entrance to the Main Stacks are located on the second floor of the Main Library.
The stacks are divided into east and west sections. The Main Circulation Desk and the entrance to the Main Stacks are located on the second floor of the Main Library. The primary entrance to the stacks is located on the fifth level of the east section (Deck 5 East). Directories and maps are posted throughout the stacks indicating the specific locations of call number ranges. A mobile compact shelving system is utilized in the west stacks to maximize storage space. Instructions for handling the compact shelving are posted throughout the west stacks. Please inquire at the Circulation Desk if you have any questions regarding the compact shelving or if you need assistance locating material in the collection.
As of July 1, 2012 the Oak Street Library Facility (OSLF) is part of Collection Management Services.
