You can take out up to 40 books as a student, up to 100 for faculty and staff.
Want to know who has a book out so you can get it? Sorry, library records are confidential, so we can't tell you that information. But, we can request things be returned if they've already been out a certain time period. (Or, if you want something and our copy is out, we can get it for you through Inter-library loan. This might actually be faster...)
More questions about checking books out, fines etc.? See our circulation department web page.
