This is some useful information to know if you want to borrow books from the Library collections:

  • Checking out books - Patrons can freely browse the shelves to search for books and check them out at the library desk. Hold requests can only be accepted on books that are currently checked out.
  • Reserve books - Reserve books can be checked out from the library desk for in-library use for a maximum of 3 hours and kept no later than 15 minutes before closing time.
  • Returning Books - Books which have been checked out of the library can be returned either at the library desk (preferably, as this lets us make sure that there are no issues with the loan while patrons are still present) or through the blue "Book Drop" box in the Guarini campus lobby, see picture below. Reserve books, however, must always be returned to the Welcome Desk.
  • Laptops and other equipment - Regardless of their respective loan duration policies (5 hours for laptops, 6 hours for other objects, such as headsets, cables, chargers, etc.), all equipment must be returned 15 minutes before closing time at the latest. Please notice that laptops and objects can be used anywhere around Guarini Campus but cannot leave the building without authorization from the librarians.
