A current Dillard University I.D. Card must be presented to borrow books and materials. Each patron is held personally responsible for library materials checked out to them. The Library has installed a security system that will alert staff members of material that is not properly charged.


LOAN PERIODS AND RENEWALS: Books are loaned for 2 weeks (14 days), with renewal privileges if no other requests have been made for the material. Students who have outstanding over-due books or fines will not be allowed check-out privileges. All books must be returned by final examination week of each semester. 


RETURNING BOOKS: Books should ONLY be returned to the Circulation Desk at the entrance of the building.


RESERVE BOOKS: Reserve materials are resources placed on limited circulation at the request of a faculty member. Circulation privileges are recommended by the faculty member who places the material on reserve. To use these items you must be a current registered Library user. There is a 2 hour limit on all reserve materials. All reserves are due back to the reserve desk fifteen (15) minutes prior to closing.    


FINES: Fines for overdue regular circulating books are $.20 cents per day per book. If a book is lost, the student is charged the replacement cost of the book and a $25.00 processing fee.
