Music Library Reserve Services and Policies

ABOUT MUSIC LIBRARY RESERVE

Materials placed on reserve at the Music Library are available for in-house use only*; Music Library Reserve loans extend to the end of the day or when a user has completed use--whichever is sooner.  Reserve materials are available the hours the Music Library is open.

Note: Reserve loan periods vary between libraries.  Music Library materials may also be placed on Reserve in the Main Library with different loan periods.  

*Exception: Overnight loan:  This is loan is for books and scores on Music Library Reserve that would normally circulate. (Reference books, reference scores, sound recordings, and videos may not be checked out on overnight loan.)
These materials may be taken out of the Music Library on an overnight loan 30 minutes before closing time. They must be returned within 30 minutes after the Music Library opens the following day. Return overnight materials on time to avoid a $1.00 per hour late fee!
