Borrowing privileges vary depending on the user.
All current full time USC students, faculty, and staff have a check-out limit of 200 books. Regular materials are due at the end of academic semester.
Alumni and retired staff or faculty typically have a limit of 20 books and the following loan periods:
- Alumni: 4 weeks
- Retired staff/faculty: either 4 weeks or semester loans (depending on emeriti status)
DVDs and other materials (reserves, reference, etc.) have shorter loan periods. If you have any questions on how long you may borrow a particular book, please consult with library staff at the circulation desk.
Non-USC users may receive borrowing privileges if they fall into certain categories. These categories can include Friends of the Libraries donors, sponsored guests, visiting scholars, summer program participants, high school students, individual or corporate fee borrowers, and approved members of affiliated institutions. Please consult the NON-USC tab of the Access & Borrowing Policies page for more information about these account types.
