All materials are brought to the Circulation desk for checkout or renewal. Materials circulate for a loan period corresponding to the material type. Non-circulating items include materials from reference, periodicals, microforms and Special Collections. Each professor selects the type of reserve circulation for his/her materials.

Library Holds
Students may place holds in the online library catalog for any items currently checked out. Holds cannot be placed for items listed as reserve, lost, missing or on order.
Students are notified when the material becomes available, and books or other items waiting for pickup are held at the circulation desk for two days. Library staff may place a hold for a student at the Circulation desk, but it is preferable that students do so within the Library Catalog.
