* Only one course reserve item may be borrowed at a time.
Books from the general collection may be renewed at the Service Desk or online by logging in to your Library Account. You can not renew an item that is overdue. If you have trouble logging into your library account, contact us.
Course Reserve materials are not renewable. To ensure everyone has access to course reserves, there is a fifteen minute waiting period before you can check out an item after returning it.
Renewals must be requested before the due date and are subject to approval.
All patrons of the Dibner Library are subject to overdue fines as outlined below. It is the borrower's responsibility to be aware of due dates. You will receive an email notice when an item is overdue.
Fines may be paid in cash at the Service Desk. Fines in excess of $30.00 and overdue books not returned by the end of the semester will result in a block on your account and prevent you from registering for classes or graduating until your account is cleared.
