Due to the closure of all University Libraries, we are making the following changes, until further notice:

All materials are being set to renew indefinitely, and we will not be assessing any overdue fines. Additionally, no existing fines will be transferred to student accounts. If you have concerns about due dates and/or fines, please contact fines@umn.edu.

We are not accepting any applications for borrowing privileges at this time. If you have concerns about your borrowing account, please contact libborrowing@umn.edu.

Special borrowing privileges may be obtained if a member of one of the categories listed below. Eligible candidates should submit a completed special borrower's application and a copy of required documentation (as indicated) to the Libraries borrowing privileges office (see address right).

Special borrowing privileges include:

  • 50 check-out limit
  • Up to 3 months loan period
  • Recall privileges
  • Get It book delivery privileges
  • On-site access (using University of Minnesota Twin Cities Libraries workstations) to e-resources and databases is available for special privileges borrowers, but not remote access.
