University Student Handbook



Students may borrow books and audiovisual materials (except videotapes and DVDs) for a period of four weeks and may renew them if no one else has requested them. Certain books in high demand, videotapes, and DVDs are loaned for only seven days. Students must present their student ID to check out these items at the Information Desk. Journals and reference materials are for use in the Library only.

Required classroom textbooks and audiovisual items are kept in the Reserve Collection and may be borrowed for two hours only; however, they may leave the Library.

Students are responsible for returning materials on or before the due date and/or time. Fines will be assessed for late returns. Journal articles or books not owned by the Library may be requested via inter-library loan.

The Library’s seven AV/group study rooms, each equipped with a VCR/DVD player, may be reserved at the Information desk for up to two hours at a time. If a room is not needed for AV viewing or group study, an individual student may use a room for quiet study.

No food or drink is permitted in the Library except for covered water bottles.
