Borrowing Materials

You can borrow, books, CDs, DVDs, IPads and Flash Drives from the library – whether a particular item can be borrowed and for how long, depends on which collection it’s in.

There are four main collections:

Reference – books that can only be used in the library – such as dictionaries and handbooks.

Main/Circulating collection – books that can be borrowed for 2 weeks and renewed for an additional week.

Study Guides – that can be borrowed for one week only and not renewed.

iPads & Media (CD's, DVD's) - can be borrowed for one week and renewed for an additional week.

Reserve – books and materials placed on reserve for a course by an instructor – can be borrowed for 2 hours – renewable for an additional 2 hours. Reserve material borrowed within the last hour the library is staffed at night will be due within the first hour the library next opens.

To borrow items from the library you need a current Touro ID from the Harlem campus.
