How long may I check out library materials?
Most circulating material may be checked out for a three-week loan period and must be returned to the Library on or before the due date stamped in the back of the book. Library material may be recalled from any patron at any time and a "recall" may be placed on items already checked out. Patrons who have placed "recalls" on Library material which is checked out are notified when a requested item is returned and is waiting for them.
Faculty and graduate students at PSU have an end-of-semester loan period: items are due either at the end of the spring semester or the end of the fall semester. Library material may be recalled from faculty and graduate students at any time. Recalls shorten a semester checkout to a period ending three weeks after the original checkout date.
