Borrowing Policies & Procedures for Faculty & Staff

Library Cards and Access
You are automatically in our system and can borrow materials. Your OneCard is your library card. You can access our online database using Single Sign On. 

Borrowing policies including loan periods, renewals, holds and fines can be found on our About Us page.


Please direct any questions about Reserves to

Putting course readings and other resources on Reserve ensures that all students have access to this material. Reserves are kept behind the Library Service Desk, filed by either course code (Sutherland), or by instructor name (Frost). Students will need their Student ID to borrow Reserves (and all Library material).

The following regulations maximize access to these high-demand items:

  • Reserves are for In-Library use only
  • Reserves have very short (same-day) loan periods 

Students may need reminders that textbooks are not typically available through the Library's print or eBook collections. Students should contact the bookstore for textbook options.

Submitting Reserves

Visit the Library or contact us to place materials on Reserve. Faculty and staff may submit personal copies or request that existing Library materials be placed on Reserve. Please note that your materials will be affixed with Library adhesive labels.

Removing Reserves

You may request to remove your item(s) from Reserve at any time.  At the end of each semester, your items will be delivered to your college mailbox unless you request to keep the material on Reserve for next term. 

Video Booking

You can book a film in advance to ensure it is available when you need it!  Contact us at and let us know the title of the film and your intended showdate.  

  • Looking for new video resources?  Check out our Streaming Video options
  • Using Films in a Remote Learning Environment, including Streaming media
  • Using DVDs?  As CPUs in lecture halls  are replaced, they may no longer have a DVD drive. Faculty should contact IT Services and request a DVD player or USB DVD drive in advance of their lecture.
