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, we will automatically renew loans of one week or longer until items reach their end renewal date. Regular books checked out to faculty or staff members reach their end renewal date two years after checkout. You must return materials by the final due date.
Materials loaned for shorter terms, such as media or Reserve items, do not have the autorenewal feature.
You may renew materials in the following ways:
- in person at the Circulation desk
- by calling 218-726-6120 during hours when the library is open, and
- online by using "My Account"—you must have a UMD Internet username and password to renew materials online
You will not be able to renew a borrowed item if another user has requested it.
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.
Interlibrary Loan Renewals
To renew materials borrowed from libraries other than those in the University of Minnesota system, log in to your Interlibrary Loan (ILLiad) account, and request "renewal" on the left.
If books or journals become more than 30 days overdue, you will be billed a replacement charge of $100 plus a processing fee of $15. Items on short-term loan will be billed as lost even before they become 30 days overdue. Faculty members and staff of UMD do not accrue overdue fines.
For more information about fines, see Paying Fines and Fees.
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 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.
