Policies

We are excited to offer 3D printing to the campus and community. Please review these policies before submitting a request. 

Students, faculty, and staff must use their U-Cards to check out library materials. Community residents may obtain a Briggs Library community card by completing a registration form at the circulation desk.

Materials are checked out at the circulation desk on the main floor of the library. At this service point, materials can also be renewed and returned.

Materials not returned within 30 days of the due date will be declared lost and the borrower will be billed the replacement cost plus a processing fee.  Fines will accrue for overdue course reserve, interlibrary loan and recalled items.

Some collections or materials have different loan periods. 

Briggs Library staff joins other libraries thorughout the nation in subscribing to the American Library Association's "Library Bill of Rights."

All library users who are affiliated with the University of Minnesota and are issued U-Cards may renew their library materials by logging onto My Library Account. Community borrowers may renew by contacting the library.
