Borrowing, Renew, Request

Most items can be borrowed, except for Course reserves, Reference works, and Periodicals. Before asking for a book, access the online Discovery to check availability, the call number, and the circulation policy of the book. You can ask the librarian for assistance or pick up the book from the shelf and use the self-check stations.

Delays beyond the 4 day grace period will lead to exclusion from service access for the amount of time equal to the duration of the delay, starting from the loan expiration date.
