How Do I Checkout Books?: Home

How do I check out an item?

All current Temple students, faculty, administration, and staff may borrow materials from any of Temple's Libraries using their Temple ID. For most materials the loan period for faculty and  administration is the academic year with items due in May. Graduate students may borrow books for the semester, and for undergraduates and staff the loan period is eight weeks. For courtesy borrowers the loan period is 4 weeks.

Books and periodical articles from other Temple campuses including the Library Depository may be requested through the request button in the Diamond catalog.


Logging into My Library Account allows library users to see what items they have checked out and also to renew items. Fines are assessed for the late return of materials for most categories of borrowers.
