Loan Terms

Loan Duration: 4 weeks

Renewals: We will process one renewal (4 weeks) for items that do not have requests from Gonzaga users. Second renewals may be granted upon special request.

Replacement: If an ILL item that we have lent is lost or damaged after leaving our premises the replacement or repair fees are the responsibility of the borrowing library.  Replacement fees will be assessed on an individual basis based on the cost of the book if a replacement is available, or $100.00 for out-of-print materials.
