Students of the University of Chicago can borrow unlimited items from the library for quarter-long loans. To borrow most Library items, bring them to the circulation desk in each library and present your UChicago Card or other library card. For detailed due date information, see Due Dates and Loan Periods.
To renew loaned items, log in to My Account in the Library Catalog and select Checked Out Items.
Students can renew regular loan items online three times. Once you reach the renewal limit, you must bring the items back to a Circulation desk to be renewed. Quarterly loans may be renewed starting the Monday after the quarter ends.
Students can request items owned by other libraries be delivered to the University of Chicago through Interlibrary Loan.
Additionally, the Library provides a Scan & Deliver service, where users can request a portion of a book or journal be scanned by library staff & sent to the patron electronically.
