Borrowing Services and Policies

All borrowers must present appropriate identification when borrowing library materials. Faculty, staff and students must present their University identification cards. Continuing Education cardholders will also be asked for supporting photo identification. Public Borrowers will be asked to show their library card and supporting photo identification. Delaware Technical and Community College and Delaware State University students will be asked to show their institution’s ID card and their University of Delaware Library borrower card. All IDs must be currently valid in the Library’s borrower database. Items checked out within the final thirty days that the borrower’s card is valid will fall due on the date that the card expires. The individual associated with the ID or library card is solely responsible for all materials borrowed on his or her card and is liable for overdue fines and charges for lost and damaged materials. ID cards and library cards are non-transferable.
