Changes to borrowing privileges coming December 10

With the launch of Omni on December 10, we will be making a few changes to our circulation policies.

The purpose of these changes is to simplify borrowing and increase use of our print collections.

The changes focus on expanding borrowing privileges and on making them the same for Carleton students, faculty, and staff.


  • The maximum number of borrowed items for students, faculty, and staff increases from 100 items to 500 items.
  • Students, faculty, and staff all allowed unlimited renewals on borrowed items.
  • Undergrad students can now also borrow items for 120 days, same as grad students, faculty, and staff.

For more information on the Library's borrowing policies, see: Borrowing Privileges.
