Borrowing Books and Other Library Items

The length of time you can borrow library items (loan period) depends on whether you are a Cortland student, faculty, staff, or community user and what you are borrowing.

Teaching Materials Center (TMC) items loan period: 4 weeks OR end of semester, whichever is first. 

Main Collection items loan period: 16 weeks OR end of semester, whichever is first. 

Faculty have a longer loan period than students. Community borrowers have a loan period of 4 weeks for books.

The loan period for books or other items through Interlibrary Loan are determined by the lending library. For more information, please visit the Interlibrary Loan page and/or Get Items from Other Libraries tab.
