Renewals: Books from the Circulating Collection may be renewed once online via My Account for an extra 14 days. Further renewals of books from the Circulating Collection may be made at the Library (without the books in hand, with the student’s College ID card). Books which have been requested by another student cannot be renewed and must be returned by their due date.
Holds: Students may request that a book on loan be placed on hold, so they are guaranteed to receive the book when it is returned. If students are unable to locate a book or periodical on the Library shelves, they may request a search at the Circulation Desk.
Abandoned items: Students are charged $5 per Reserve, Reference or Films/Music item that they borrow and abandon anywhere at the College, including in the Library.
Total fines of $5 or more: Students will lose borrowing privileges temporarily if they have unpaid fines that are equal to or in excess of $5. Their borrowing privileges will be reinstated after they pay the outstanding fine. At the end of the semester, all students with outstanding overdue books and library fines will be placed on the Library’s suspension list and their names will be forwarded to the Finance Office for Billing.
Overnight Reserves: Many two-hour reserve items can be borrowed overnight starting at 4 p.m. Monday to Thursday and over the weekend starting at 2 p.m. on Friday. They must be returned by 8:30 a.m. on the following school day. Students cannot borrow a book if there is only one copy on the Reserve shelves.

For reproductions that exceed that or to copy any items on the exclusions list, students should contact Information Services Librarian Matthew Flanagan and Marianopolis employees should consult the Copyright section of the Launchpad.
