Q. How long can faculty check out books for?


Full-time faculty may check out most circulating materials for 60 days—video recordings and reserve materials are exceptions. Items charged to adjunct faculty will be due by the end of the term. In most instances, materials may be renewed as long as no other patrons have placed a hold on them.

If a faculty member has any items more than one year overdue (90 days for adjunct faculty), their library privileges will be blocked and they will be billed for replacement of the item.

Faculty are only charged overdue fines for items borrowed through the interlibrary loan services.  These charges are $0.20 per day.

All circulation notices are sent electronically to faculty members’ Mercyhurst email accounts.
