Extending Loan Privileges for Faculty

The Shields Library and the Physical Sciences & Engineering Library are pleased to announce that, effective immediately, faculty and research borrowers no longer need to bring in Shields and PSE books at the end of the year to re-check them out. It is now possible to renew these books on the web (, by phone or in person.

Books can be renewed twice, allowing faculty and research borrowers to keep the material for as long as three years (unless recalled for another borrower) without bringing them back to the library. (Books with holds on them cannot be renewed). Especially for researchers with many volumes checked out, this will be a great time-saver.

Faculty with proxy borrowers have some special instructions. Please check the renewal reminder emailed by the library on May 4 for instructions. If you have any questions, please call the library (Shields 752-1203; Physical Sciences & Engineering 752-5507)
