Borrowing Privileges for UMD Faculty and Staff
In order to check out materials from the UMD Library, you must present a photo ID. Please bring items for checkout to the Circulation desk, located on the first floor of the Library.
Renew It Three Ways!
For your convenience, the Library provides three different ways for you to renew UMD-owned items: (1) in person at the Circulation desk, (2) by calling 218-726-6120 during hours when the Library is open, and (3) online by using "My Account." To renew materials borrowed through Interlibrary Loan, log into your ILLiad account. The length of time during which items may be renewed is limited. See a Circulation staff member if you encounter any difficulty renewing materials.
Faculty members and staff of UMD do not accrue overdue fines. However, an item that becomes more than 45 days overdue will be billed as unreturned. The fee will include replacement cost and a processing fee ($15).
Lost an Item?
The charge for an unreturned item includes replacement cost plus a processing fee ($15).
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 members 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.
