Borrowing Materials

Students, staff, and faculty must present a current Aquinas College ID to check out Library material. Alumni and community members may obtain a library card with a current, state-issued ID.

Renewing Items

Most items can be renewed online, by phone (616.632.2137), or in person.

InterLibrary Loan (ILL) items may only be renewed by the ILL Coordinator at ill@aquinas.edu or 632-2128. 

Overdue and Lost Items

Items not returned by their due dates are considered overdue. An overdue notice is sent two weeks after the due date. After 30 days the cost of the item is billed to the borrower. Upon return of the billed item, the charge is removed from the user's account.

Bills for lost or damaged materials must be paid at the Student Accounts Office in HH 131.

Questions can be directed to Christina Radisauskas at radischr@aquinas.edu or 616-632-2130.
