For items borrowed from another library, the duration of the loan and any restrictions on using the item is determined by the lending library. They also determine if a renewal for the item will be allowed. The Virginia Tech Interlibrary Loan Department honors all rules established by lenders. Borrowing materials from another institution is a privilege. You are expected to return books on time and to honor any restrictions on use that are stipulated by the lending library.

In general these rules may include:

  • You may retain most borrowed items for at least 2 weeks. Check the sticker on your item.
  • Some materials may be restricted to use only within Newman Library.
  • Some materials may have restrictions against photocopying.
  • Items obtained through interlibrary loan may not be put on Virginia Tech Library Reserve.
