 A lot of Reserve Room items may be checked out.  To ensure optimal access, specified loan periods are designated by faculty when the materials are placed on reserve:  Common check-out times are:

  • 2-hour checkout (material must be used in the library)
  • 4-hour checkout
  • 24-hour checkout (Overnight, must be returned by 5:30pm the following day)
  • 3-day checkout
  • 7-day checkout

All users are assessed fines for materials not returned by specified date or time. There is NO grace period for Reserve items. Overdue charges for reserve materials are higher than general collection resources to encourage their prompt return. If items are not returned on time the following fines will be assessed: 

Fines for Overnight, 24 Hour, 3 Day, and 7 Day Reserve items accrue at $1.00 per day, to a maximum $12.00 fine.
Fines for 2 Hour Reserve items accrue at a rate of $1.00 per hour or portion of an hour, to a maximum $12.00 fine.
