Student Worker Training Guide: Circulation Periods

Taken from Warner Library's Circulation Policy

Circulation Periods

Materials may be borrowed from the collection for differing periods, depending on the material and the patron’s status. Reference books and print periodicals do not circulate outside the library. E-Z Borrow books circulate for 4 weeks and are permitted only one renewal. EZ Borrow and ILL books may not be used by faculty for course reserves, nor by students for course textbooks. The library reserves the right to refuse processing any book requests via interlibrary loan due to inappropriate content.
