  • You are responsible for all material checked out on your card and for knowing the due dates. A receipt with book titles and due dates will be printed if requested when the material is charged out. 
  • You are responsible for returning or renewing materials on time.
    To view a list of library materials checked out on your account and their due dates, select on the library home page under Services or click on the My Account button in Worldcat Local. My Account may be checked anytime from on or off campus.
