Loan period and restrictions

For items borrowed from another library, the loan period and any restrictions on using the item are determined by the lending library. 

For most print or media items: 

  • Loan periods generally run from 2-8 weeks, though some may have shorter loan periods.
  • Some materials may have restricted usage, such as:
    • Library Use Only: the item cannot leave Newman Library, and we cannot mail the material to Extended Users.
    • No Renewals
    • No Photocopying: the lending library does not allow for copying due to copyright restrictions, though this happens rarely

Please return materials promptly by the due date listed on the item's ILL label.
