Loan periods for circulating items
|Books and scores|
|Sound recordings||1 week|
|Video recordings||3 days|
|Periodicals||do not circulate|
|Reference materials||do not circulate|
|Microforms||do not circulate|
|Library Research||Library Research materials generally do not circulate, though they may be checked out by faculty and instructors for 1 week|
|Special Collections||Since these materials are generally very old, rare, and/or delicate, circulation is determined on a case by case basis. Only full-time library staff members may retrieve items from Special Collections.|
Books, scores, audio and visual recordings, and other materials may be placed on reserve for a particular course. These items are generally only on reserve during the semester the course is offered. The Music Library does keep some items on permanent reserve.
All reserve materials are kept behind the circulation desk. To request items, please refer to the Reserves binder at the circulation desk (organized alphabetically by instructor's name or in the Permanent Reserve listings of the binder).
Reserve items circulate for 2 hours, and may not leave the library without explicit permission from the instructor of the course. Only two reserve items may be checked out at a time.

Items which remain overdue past the specified billing date will be charged for the full replacement cost of the item plus any late/processing fees. Once billed, you will have 15 days to return or replace the overdue item. After this time no refunds for replacement cost will be distributed.
