Interlibrary Loan Deadline Approaching

The deadline for placing interlibrary loan requests by students is quickly approaching. ILL requests should be placed no later than May 1st in order for the request to be processed and received before the end of the semester. Those library users with special needs which will require exceptions to this deadline, should add a note in the notes/comment field of the ILL request form. If you have any questions about placing ILL requests, please ask at the Reference Desk in the Library.

End-of-Semester Due Date

As the end of the semester approaches, all library items checked out by students are due and should be returned by the end of final exams. Please make sure that you return your items before leaving campus in order to avoid receiving overdue notices and possibly fines. A special loan period allowing students to check out materials during the summer will be available soon. If you have questions about material due dates, please ask for help at the Circulation Desk.
