Limits and Due Dates
Currently, students are limited to three checkouts for 14 days.
Currently, we have only one copy on most books. We can add more copies in 12 hours. We encourage students to place a hold on a book they like, as that alerts us that we need to purchase more of that title. Users will get an email when the title is available.
