Returns & Quarantining Materials

As the Libraries respond to the COVID-19 pandemic, Library materials should be returned to the dropbox outside of either Library. After you return materials, they will be quarantined for 4 days to ensure they are safe to circulate. Library staff will backdate the materials upon check-in AFTER the four day quarantine period. Overdue fines will be modified to reflect this, but if you receive notice that your books are overdue despite having returned them, rest assured - the fine will be removed.

Course Reserve Checkouts

For Fall 2020, we will be temporarily adjusting our Course Reserves loan policy from 4 hours in-Library use only to a 2 day loan period that will allow patrons to check-out Course Reserves from the Library. Since these materials are limited and in high demand, we will be enforcing an increased late fee of $2/day for any reserves returned after their due date. 

Recalled Books

If you receive an email notification that a book you have checked out has been placed on hold by another patron, it must be returned within seven days. Fines will be $1/day for books not returned within that time frame.
