Graduate students get unlimited renewals on regular book loans

University Park, Pa. -- Effective immediately, Penn State graduate students have unlimited renewals on regular loans of books from University Libraries' collections. This service enhancement will eliminate the need for graduate students to carry books, which have reached the two-renewal limit, back to the library in order to check them out once more. By taking this user-centered approach University Libraries will eliminate a small measure of stress for a core group of almost 12,000 users during a very hectic time of year.

Undergraduate students, alumni and visitors remain at two renewals. Faculty and staff have received unlimited renewals since 2003.
