Loan Periods

How soon do I have to return Reserve materials?

Reserves items may be borrowed one item at a time. Reserves are first-come, first-served; we are unable to hold Reserves items for later pickup and cannot renew these items.

Loan periods

1. Three-hour loans

  • Only one item is loaned to an individual at a time
  • Item due at the Reserves Desk three (3) hours after check out
  • Items charged out less than 1 hour before building closing time will be due within one hour of the next opening time (becomes an overnight loan).

2. One-day loans 

  • Items due back to Reserves Desk before closing time the day after check out

3. Three-days loan

  • Items due back to Reserves Desk before closing time three (3) days after check out

4. Seven-days loan (graduate courses only)

  • Items due back to Reserves Desk before closing time seven (7) days after check out

Overdue Fines on Reserve Materials

  • Three-hour reserve (overnight loans): $1.00 per hour to a maximum of $100.00.
  • One, three, and seven-day reserve: $5.00 per day to a maximum of $100.00.

All fines are due and payable when the overdue item is returned. Payment by check, money order, or cash will be accepted. When a reserve item is overdue or reserve fines are charged against your record, you are blocked from further library transactions and a library hold is placed on your student record.

Note: All reserve transactions require presentation of a valid Shippensburg University I.D.
