Circulation Policies

Library materials must be signed out at the Reference Desk between the hours of 8:45 a.m. and 5 p.m., Monday through Friday. There are two book drops available for the return of library materials - one at the library entrance, and one on the third floor of the West building.

Books

May be signed out for three months at a time with unlimited renewals, but are subject to recall for another patron's use.

New Books

May be signed out for three weeks.

Journals

Bound journals may be signed out for a two-week period; unbound journals do not circulate.

Reference Materials

Nursing and medical texts in sections Ref.25 and Ref.26 may be signed out overnight. Other reference materials should not leave the library without special arrangement with a librarian.

Audiovisuals

May be signed out indefinitely, but subject to recall if needed by another patron.

Materials used in the library should be left on tables, book trucks, and in carrels. Please do not reshelve library materials! Library staff maintains usage statistics by recording what is reshelved each day.
