Loan Periods

How long can you borrow books from the library?

Most books from the regular library collection may be signed out for 2 weeks. Some specially marked, heavily used, or required course reading materials may have restricted loan periods (such as 3 hours); be sure to check your receipt/library account details on loaned items.

The length of the loan period varies with the status of the borrower. Please consult the schedule below for loan periods and renewals for items from the regular collection.
