All renewal requests should be made at least one week prior to the due date.

Recalls:

Books that are recalled need to be returned to the library immediately. Fines can accrue for failure to return them promptly. If you plan to be away from the lab for an extended period of time, it is strongly urged that you return your books. The other option is to make arrangements with the library staff for accessing any books that are checked out.

Other information:

Current issues, bound journals, some serials, and rare books are to be used in the library only. Ask library staff for items in rare book room.

All reference materials are non-circulating (short-term loans are possible - please ask staff for assistance).

New books received in the library remain on the new bookshelf for 2 weeks, after which checkout is possible. Holds may be requested; please ask library staff for assistance.

Patrons are responsible for ALL checked out materials until they are returned to the library. Book return bin is located near the front entrance of the library.

Please DO NOT reshelve anything (for statistics recording purposes). Leave materials on tables or place them on the book trucks for reshelving.

Return library materials prior to graduation or termination of employment.
