The loan period for circulating books is fourteen (14) days

Library patrons may borrow up to five (5) books at one time
Library patrons may renew books on loan from the library twice
Library patrons must renew library books in person
Library patrons may not renew books with a hold or recall request
Failure to return checked out materials will result in the patron’s student record being placed on hold, preventing subsequent registration or transcript release until the materials are returned to the library or the appropriate fines are paid. Materials not returned within 30 days after the hold has been placed will be assumed to be lost. The patron’s record will remain on hold and a charge for the cost of the material will be assessed. Before the hold can be removed from the patron’s student record, the cost of the material must be paid in full at the cashier’s office

Instructors can house course materials within the library to be loaned to their students. Loan periods for these resources are determined by the instructor. Most reserved material cannot be taken from the library.
