Loan periods for reserve materials are assigned by the professor and will be different for each item:
- 2-Hour: For in-library use only. "Library" does not include the basement. No overnight use permitted.
- 3-Hour: For media materials only. Overnight allowed at discretion of instructor from one hour before closing to one hour after opening.
- 24-Hour (1 day): Due back in twenty-four hours.
- 3-Day: Due back 72 hours from the time of checkout.
- 7-Day: Due back 168 hours from the time of checkout.
Renewals are not guaranteed. Renewals may occur after a 15 minute wait if no other student needs the same material. Library staff have the discretion to distribute course reserve materials in the most equitable way possible.
Restrictions and Fines
Fines for reserve materials accumulate at a rate of $.50 per hour with no fine limit. If you have any overdue items or owe any fines, additional borrowing is prohibited until all overdue items are returned and all fines are paid. Failure to return library reserve materials is a violation of the Student Code of Conduct.
