All books may be renewed and unlimited number of times unless requested by another borrower. Please know that if a book is requested by another patron, a borrower will normally have seven days to return the book, notwithstanding the original due date.  The due date stamped into the book at the circulation counter serves simply as a courtesy reminder of the due at the time the stamp was applied.  If a book is recalled before the date stamped into the book, the new recall due date takes precedence.  For greater clarity, the due date listed in the library’s online catalogue is the official due date of the book at any time. 

Reserve Material

Your professor may request that the library place material on 1, 2 or 4 hour, 1, 3 or 7 day reserve. The Reserves list enables you to search for reserve material.

Special Processing and Searches

All items on order are indicated in the online catalogue. If there is a particular title that has been received but is not yet available for circulation, please fill out a CAN'T FIND A BOOK? form available on the pods containing library chromebooks. Under normal circumstances, you will have the book in your hands within 48 hours. You may also use this slip to request that the library search for a book missing from the shelf.
