Other Circulation Services and Policies

Holds: You may place a hold on an item that is currently checked out by bringing the title and the call number to the circulation desk. You will be notified when the item is returned and may pick the item up at the circulation desk. Please inform the circulation desk worker if the item is no longer needed.

Microforms: The library has a digital microform reader/printer/scanner available in the first-floor copy room; printing (via the campus printing network) is $0.02 per single-sided page or $0.03 per double-sided page. Stand-alone readers (no printing) are located in the first-floor copy room and second floor by government documents.

Renewals: Materials checked out can be renewed before the due date by phone, by email, in person, or by using "My Library Account". Please note that when the final renewal period has been reached, the item needs to come back to the library for inventory purposes for 48 hours before it can be checked out again.

Reserves: Materials placed on reserve can be checked out for use for the period of 2 to 4 hours (depending on the instructions of the professor). Keeping in mind the needs of other students, fines are charged for overdue reserve items at the rate of $0.30 per hour per item for the first day, and $5.00 per day per item for any following days.
