Lending Guidelines

How do I get a book?

Bookloans are available to all students who are enrolled in classes for the current term. Bookloan is free.

  1. Check our catalog of titles to ensure we carry the book you want. Please note that this list is not comprehensive--we purchase new books throughout the semester. Feel free to send us an email with a specific book inquiry.
  2. Check our opening dates.
  3. Bring in required documents to our office (see below).

Bookloan Operates on a First Come First Served basis. We do not hold materials nor take reservations.

What do I need to bring?

When you come to our office please bring:

  • Student ID card
  • Verification of enrollment in classes
  • Booklist
  • Verification of Priority status if attending priority lending*.

All documents are available from your Web4 account. For directions on printing out all your required documentation, please click here. Student ID cards can be picked up in Smith Hall 118 at the Registration Center. If you are without your ID card you will be turned away. No Exceptions.
