Materials on reserve may be checked out at the Circulation Desk.

The Reserves collection is available during regular library hours.

Anyone possessing a valid University of Rhode Island ID may borrow materials from the Reserves collection.

Restrictions on Use

Restrictions on use are determined by the faculty member who placed the material on Reserve or by the Libraries' staff.

Library Use Only

3 hour loan. Items may not be taken out of the library.

Open Reserves

Items may be taken out of the library for 3 days.

Borrowers are limited to checking out two items at a time from the Reserves collection.

Overdue Items

The fine for overdue material is $1.00 per HOUR for Library Use Only Reserve items and $1.00 per DAY for Open Reserve items.

Unpaid fines for overdue items will result in a suspension of borrowing privileges.

An item overdue for five days will be considered lost. The borrower will be billed for the average cost of an item plus a processing charge. Borrowing privileges are automatically suspended and sanctions will be applied by the registrar until the bill for the lost item(s) is settled. If an item is found and returned at a later time, a refund will be made for the price of the item with an overdue fine deducted.
