Course reserves are available at the Music Library service desk for 2 hour loan. Only 1 course reserve item can be borrowed at a time. Course reserves borrowed 1 hour before closing time are due back 1 hour after opening the next day.
- Two days before an item is due, the system will automatically try to renew it on your behalf
- If the item is not eligible for renewal, you will get an email advising you to return it
- If another borrower requests an item checked out to you, it will not be eligible for renewal – if the due date is more than 14 days away, your loan period will shorten to 14 days, and you will get a email asking you to return it
- Once your maximum potential loan period (see table above) is reached, you must return your items to any University of Toronto library to avoid overdue fines.
- You can also proactively renew your items by signing into LibrarySearch
Automatic renewals are not made when:
- The item is a short term loan, which include course reserves
- The item is an audio/video item
- Someone else has requested the item
- You have reached the maximum potential loan period for your patron type – see table above
- You are an alumni borrower – alumni borrowers do not get renewals
When another borrower places a hold on your checked out item
- If another borrower places a hold on an item that is checked out to you, it will be recalled, i.e., your loan period will shorten* to 14 days and you will get an email asking you to return within 14 days
- If you do not return it within 14 days, you will be charged a fine of $2.00 per day until it is returned
- In addition, overdue recalls blocks the patron form borrowing
- * Note that if the checked-out book has a due date less than 14 days and is then recalled, the due date will not be changed
|ITEM TYPE||FINE RATE|
