RENEWALS

Circulating TU library materials may be renewed by TU students, Faculty, and staff if they are not overdue and if there are no holds on the item. Renewals must be made in person at the circulation desk (Distance students and faculty must renew over the phone, before the due date, by speaking with a Librarian or Staff member and NOT a student worker).

Most materials are due on the last day of classes of the active semester.

A shortened loan period may be less than stated in the event:

  • The last day of classes comes before the checkout loan period
  • Student withdraws from TU – all items must be returned prior to withdrawal
  • Faculty/staff leave employ of TU – all items must be returned prior to last day worked

*Headphone checkout is restricted to TU students/faculty only; proper identification must be provided.  Personal headphones may be used if sufficient quality to contain noise.  Any individual using headphones in the library is asked to maintain the quiet volume level of the environment.
