Borrowing Privileges for UMD Faculty and Staff
Please bring items for checkout to the Circulation desk, located on the first floor of the library. Your U Card is your borrowing card, but you may use any photo ID to check out materials.
For your convenience, the library will automatically renew your regular book loans until you reach an end renewal date equivalent to two years beyond the original loan period. You must return materials by the end date. If items become more than 30 days overdue, you will be billed a replacement charge of $100 plus a processing fee of $15. Renewal is prevented when another user requests an item you have checked out. Materials loaned for shorter terms, such as media, Reserve items, and study rooms, do not have the autorenewal feature.
You may check your account and renew materials in the following ways: (1) in person at the Circulation desk, (2) by calling 218-726-6120 during hours when the library is open, and (3) online by using "My Account." You will need to have a UMD internet user name and password to renew materials online. To renew materials borrowed through Interlibrary Loan, log into your ILLiad account. The length of time during which an item may be renewed is limited. See a Circulation staff member if you encounter any difficulty renewing materials.
Faculty members and staff of UMD do not accrue overdue fines. However, an item that becomes more than 30 days overdue will be billed as lost. For more information about fines, see Paying Fines and Fees.
Lost an Item?
The charge for an unreturned item includes replacement cost ($100) plus a processing fee ($15).
Blocked or Barred Privileges?
You may be subject to the loss of borrowing privileges, as well as interlibrary loan privileges, in the following circumstances:
• if you have fees for unreturned items in excess of $250
• if interlibrary loan items checked out to you become overdue, lost, or damaged.
Faculty members and staff of UMD will be billed for damaged library materials. The faculty or staff member is responsible for paying these fines. Library privileges may be blocked due to fines.
