Loan Periods for Hatcher Graduate Library
|Faculty, Staff, and Graduate Students||Term loan|
|Undergraduate Students, Alumni, & Unaffiliated Guests||3 weeks|
Need a book from another U-M campus library? The Get This service will bring library items to the location most convenient for you.
All Hatcher Graduate Library materials may be renewed via Mirlyn any number of times unless another borrower has requested the item.
Learn how to renew a book from the Borrowing and Circulation page on renewals.
Recalls occur when another patron requests an item that is already checked out. When a book is recalled borrowers will receive a recall notice via email. The recalled book is due on the date listed after the new recall due date, in that notice and in your Mirlyn account.
Return recalled books directly to a library circulation desk, or to the outside drop box if the library is closed.
Borrowing privileges are suspended if a recalled item is not returned by the recall due date. In addition, a $2.00 per day per item fine is assessed to all student borrowers.
See the Borrowing and Circulation policy on fines for more information.
|Recall overdue fines||$2.00 per day||All Borrowers|
|Lost Book fees||Cost of book (or default price of $100.00) plus $50.00 processing fee||All Borrowers|
|Returned Check fee||$15.00||All Borrowers|
Borrowing privileges are suspended when a book becomes 30 days overdue. Privileges are restored when the item is renewed or returned. This applies to all borrowers.
Tours of the library are scheduled every Fall Term during the first 2 weeks of classes. A Self-Guided Walking Tour booklet is also available at the Hatcher Graduate Library North Circulation desk, year round. Library Floor Plans are also available.
