Borrowing from Fintel Library

Back

1. Can I check materials out any time that the library is open?
Yes. The only exception to this is during exam periods when the library is open 24 hours and the lending services desk closes at midnight. Library Hours.

2. What do I need in order to borrow materials?
Not a lot. Just bring your campus ID. While we have a strong preference for your use of your campus ID, we will accept your seven digit student ID number (found on the front of your card), assuming you've memorized it.

3. If I have fines on my library record, will it stop me from borrowing materials?
Once your fines reach $10, you will be unable to borrow materials. Please see the table in the answer to the next question for the rate at which fines accrue.

4. How long can I keep materials? Are there any limits on what I may borrow?

5. Can I have someone check materials out on my behalf?
Regardless of borrower status, we cannot check materials out to anyone who isn't present at the time of checkout. We observe this guideline as a means of protecting your library record from potential misuse. Faculty may adhere to the guidelines of proxy borrowing (faculty members, please see your department chair for details on how this works)
