Undergraduate Guide to Borrowing

How long can I borrow?

LOAN PERIODS VARY FROM ONE YALE LIBRARY TO ANOTHER. All circulating library materials may be recalled by another reader. You will be sent a notice in case this happens

How many books (or other types of loans) can I check out at once?

  • Undergraduates: 100 books/loans
  • Undergraduate Senior: 150 books/loans
  • Summer Students: 25 books/loans

Loans from any collection, including requests from the Library shelving Facility (LSF), are counted.

 

Fines

How much am I charged if I'm late returning a loan?

  • $2.00 per day for overdue books that have been recalled.
  • $2.00 per day for 3-day reserves.
  • $3.00 per hour for reserve 2-hour and 24-hour reserve books.
  • Higher fees for overdue closed reserve books.
  • The due date stamped or receipts placed in the book at the time it is borrowed is the library's official notice that the book will be due on that date, unless it is called back earlier for another reader. The borrower is responsible for the return or renewal of the book on or before the due date. Check with the individual library for specific fees.
  • Lost or long-overdue material: Material that has not been returned 35 days after the due date will be declared LOST automatically. The patron will be assessed a $75.00 Unreturned Book Fee and a non-refundable $20.00 Processing Fee, as well as the overdue fines.
