Spend more time with your library books

girl reading book in libraryYou asked and we listened!  With the start of spring term, we’re doubling the loan period for most MIT Libraries’ materials.  Now you’ll get a 60-day loan for items like books, graphic novels and MIT theses.  But wait, there’s more!   We’re also increasing the number of times you can renew your loans. MIT faculty, students and staff can now renew loans up to 5 times (unless they’ve been requested by someone else).  The longer loan periods plus increased renewals can add up to a loan of 360 days–nearly one year– for MIT faculty, students, and staff!

As always, you can visit Your Account to view loans and renew eligible items.  However, a gentle reminder: If you’re finished with your library materials before your loan ends, please return items to any MIT Libraries location, including the book drop in the Stata Center Student Street.

Stay tuned in the coming months for additional changes that will make MIT Libraries’ materials more accessible and make your loans easier to manage.   For more information about current library policies, check out our Circulation FAQ.
