You may borrow and return books and other library materials at the Circulation Desk located in the lobby. All circulating materials must be checked out at the Circulation Desk before being removed from the library. You are required to present your valid Hillcard when borrowing any materials, and you are responsible for materials checked out in your name. You are also responsible for knowing when the materials you checked out are due. Normally, the due date is stamped on the date slip attached to the item. You may also look at your current library record by using the Your library account feature on our homepage.
If you lose your Hillcard, please notify Campus Police immediately. Do NOT allow anyone else to use your Hillcard.

A hold can be placed on materials currently checked out to another patron. Placing a hold means adding your name to a waiting list for an item already checked out.
