New Loan Periods for Faculty

Beginning June 2014, books checked out to faculty are now loaned for six months.

As long as the item isn’t requested by another patron, faculty may renew items. Renewals can be done online by using “My OskiCat” before the book is due. Faculty can renew the book several times for a total loan period of four years.

The Library has changed these loan periods with a goal of creating more consistent practices that bridge all our campus libraries. The six month loan period for faculty is a compromise between the former practices of one month loans in the science libraries, and twelve month loans in the social science and humanities libraries.
