Alumni, neighbors  & guests are responsible for all items charged out on their card.  Lost or stolen cards should be reported immediately to the Library. All alumni, neighbors & guests are advised for their own protection not to loan their cards to other persons or to give materials charged to their accounts to any other person.  Neighbors are only allowed one card per family.  Neighbors should bring additional family member's information to the Miller Information Commons circulation desk, so we can note who will have borrowing privileges for each account.

Loan Policies

Alumni, neighbors & guests may take out a maximum of 5 books for two weeks. Library privileges include borrowing books from collections such as New Books, Main Stacks, Children's Collection, and Teaching and Learning.  Alumni, neighbors & guests who have reached their item maximum will be unable to check out further materials. Alumni, neighbors & guests must bring the books(s) back to the library to renew them. If the book does not have a hold on it, the person may check it out for an additional two weeks. Books are subject to recall so that high-demand items may be accessible to the largest number of patrons. Alumni, neighbors & guests receiving a recall notice should return the requested items within 3 days.

Overdue and Lost Items

Any books not returned or renewed on time may be considered lost and the amount of the full replacement cost for each item will be billed unless the item is returned or renewed. The replacement cost for books is $75.00 per item. Questions about library borrowing may be directed to Sarah Camille Wilson, Access Services Administrator, at or call at 802-860-2717.
