How to Borrow Items
To get access to the Library you have to bring your AUP ID. Then to have the right to borrow books you have to come to the Service Desk during Regular Library Hours.
In order to borrow books, patrons must present a current, valid AUPID card.
Reminder: Access and Borrowing Privileges are for Personal Use Only
Validated Cards May Be Used for General Loans and for Reserves
During the day or evening, library users can check books out to themselves without assistance (as long as they have no overdue books, blocks, etc.). There is a self check machine near the Service Desk with instructions on the wall. Users will need their card and the items they wish to check out. Videos may not be checked out on the machine (DVDs may be checked out if they are circulating.) We have detailed instructions here in pdf format and in a PowerPoint slideshow.
Certain materials may not circulate, and must be consulted within the library.
These include books from the Reference Collection, books stamped "non-circulating," some reserve materials, and all print periodicals.
It also includes Films. See the Academic Film Collection to be aware of the allowed usage.
