Overdue Materials

One of the benefits that we extend to faculty is the opportunity to borrow library resources for extended periods of time. To ensure that items are available for use by other patrons, we ask that items be returned by the due date, which is 125 days from the date of initial checkout. Individual titles may be renewed for another 45 days (for a total borrowing time of 170 days per book). After 170 days, the book will need to remain on the shelf for at least three weeks before the same faculty member may check it out again. Additionally, a faculty member may have up to 50 books checked out at one time (and this number does not include books borrowed through ILL). If a faculty member has unique circumstances, she or he should communicate directly with the library director to discuss options on a case-by-case basis.
