Loan periods for Architecture Library materials are different than the loan periods for items at the University Library. Patrons may renew loans using their Library Account or may contact the Library directly for renewal assistance.
Library loans are declared 'Lost' (21) days after the original due date. Lost loans incur a $125 fine per book that must be paid to Student Business Services. If/when the lost loan(s) are returned, the patron will be reimbursed $115 for each lost loan.
If you have a loan that has been declared 'Lost,' we encourage you to reach-out to us as soon as possible for assistance and/or to confirm your intent to return the book.
