Book Loan and Renewal Policies

The standard loan period for books is six (6) weeks. However, loan periods may vary by title and are subject to immediate recall. Renewals may or may not be permitted as determined by the University of Minnesota Libraries. InfoNOW reserves the right to deny a loan request to any client at any time. Some factors that might lead to a denial of service include past loss of materials, new client, rare materials request, international shipping, or suspected abuse of copyright.
