Renewing Library Materials

  • Items borrowed from the D'Youville Library may be renewed up to 3 times  
  • Each renewal is good for an additional six weeks, unless otherwise specified  
  • If a hold has been placed on an item, it will not be renewed and the item must be returned by the originally assigned due date

Reserved Library Materials

A course reserves list can be found in the library catalog. Sort the reserves list by clicking on the column names along the top of the list. You can sort by course name, number or instructor. 

Anatomical models are also on reserve but are found on a separate list. You can also do a keyword search in the library catalog  by typing "model" and body part (for example entering "model hand" will bring up listings for all hand models on reserve). Here is a complete listing of our reserve models. 

Appointments to check-out reserve materials can be requested by completing the online Reserves Form, or by visiting the second floor circulation desk during office hours. 

An email will be sent confirming your reserve appointment. 

Gloves will be supplied with reserve materials, and must be worn whenever handling reserve materials, as a sufficient quarantine period cannot be guaranteed.
