Students: Checkout guidelines

Many 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 on loan, check Course Reserves search to see when they are due.
  • Loan periods are determined by the instructor and vary from 1 to 48 hours.


  • Turn in materials at the circulation desk.
  • DO NOT put items in the return bins, as these are checked only once per day and you may incur hourly overdue fines.

Overdue Fines

  • $1 per hour up to a maximum of $50 per item.
