Using The Library


We are happy to help you. Here are some tips that will help you get the most out of your library visit.

  • Please bring your student ID card every time you come to the library. You need it to borrow books, use the photocopier, and print from our computers.
  • Please check in with us after you get your student ID, so that we can activate your card. Once that happens, you can do a lot of research from home — we’ll show you how.
  • We have computers and WiFi access for both students and guests.


Students can borrow books, DVDs, and other items for the following periods:

  • Books: 4 weeks
  • Periodicals & Maine File: 1 week
  • Videos: 2 weeks
  • Course Reserves: varies – please call ahead for details.


Be sure you know the due date for any library materials you check out. We will send you a notice on any overdue books. Returning or renewing books promptly at this point will avoid all fines. Your next notice will be an emailed and printed bill for $55.00. If you return books after they have been billed to you, your cost for URSUS books will be removed.


If no one else is waiting for the books checked out to you, you may renew them by phone, in person, or through the online catalog (URSUS). Renewal lets you avoid all overdue notices and bills. Periodicals, Maine File materials, videos and reserves cannot be renewed.
