How long can I borrow an item for?
For Undergraduates, most books and other items on regular loan can be borrowed for 14 days. Unless requested by another borrower, these materials may be renewed to a maximum of six renewals by York University borrowers and once by external borrowers. Items with more than one hold are loaned for 7 days only and are not renewable.
If something is put on reserve, it will be available for periods ranging from two hours to three days, and is not renewable.
Faculty members, graduate students, and research associates automatically receive extended 100 day loans on material designated for regular loan from Frost, Law, Scott, Steacie Libraries. Material from the Peter F. Bronfman Library is not available for extended loan, except for doctoral students. Unless requested by another borrower, these materials may be renewed twice. Items with more than one hold are loaned for 7 days only and are not renewable.
Materials borrowed from the Sound and Moving Image Library have different loan periods, depending on the type of item and your borrowing status. See the SMIL for complete details.
