Rules for Borrowing Materials from the Textbook Collection

The loan period for textbooks is 14 days. You may renew your loan as long as no one makes a hold request for the book.

Overdue return of textbook

Because of the high demand for textbooks, there are specific rules for borrowing materials from this collection. If a book is not returned or renewed after being recalled your borrowing privileges will be suspended until the book is returned and an additional 6 weeks after returning. This means that you will not be able to borrow new books or renew your loans. If the book is not returned or renewed, you will be required to pay for the item and you will receive an invoice for the book.

Please read the University Library Circulation Policies for more specific information about the rules that apply. Library Circulation Policies
