You may renew your Main Stacks library books once, either online, by telephone, or in person at the library on or before the due date. No renewals are permitted on EZBorrow books, Group Study Rooms, Course Reserves, and Media materials. One renewal is permitted on Popular Reading books, Laptops, Laptop parts, and Audio Books.

All library material types are subject to recall by another library patron or department. A recall will shorten your loan period and a notice will be sent to notify you of the adjustment to your due date. Failure to comply with a recall may result in a suspension of library privileges.

Exceptions, Borrowing Limits, and Fines/Fees
You may borrow up to 100 Main Stacks books, 10 Reserve items, and 3 Mixed Media items. Calculators can be borrowed for 3 hours and may be taken from the building for use in other University locations. Daily overdue fines on Main Stacks materials do not apply; lost item charges will be applied if materials become greater than 30 days overdue.

Keep in mind that hourly overdue fines and lost item charges are applied and payable for overdue loans of laptops, laptop accessories, videos, calculators, ethernet cables, group study room keys, and Course Reserve materials. Other limits may apply.

Lost item replacement charges range from $25.00 to $150.00, depending on the material type and shelf location. A non-refundable processing fee of $30.00 will also be applied to each lost item. Once paid, lost item replacement charges are refundable up to one year from the date of payment. The library reserves the right to replace a title in question with a different title as dictated by the needs of the curriculum and the collection.

A lost book can be replaced by the patron with a brand new copy of the same title, edition, binding, and ISBN number. The replacement must be in new or very good condition and must not contain any visible damage or marks of any kind. Any late fines that had accrued plus a non-refundable processing fee of $30.00 will be payable upon receipt and approval of the replacement copy.
