Students: Checkout guidelines

Like you, other students need access to the materials reserved for courses. Please be respectful of the checkout guidelines so that everyone in the class has the opportunity to access the material.


  • Availability is first-come, first-serve. If course reserve materials are unavailable, check Course Reserves search to see when they are due.
  • Checkout durations are determined by the instructor and vary from 1 hour to 2 days.


  • DO NOT put items in the return bins outside the library or at the circulation desk.
  • Please turn in materials at the circulation desk.


  • $1 per hour up to a maximum of $50 per item.
  • Fines begin immediately after the due time.
