Borrow & Renew

Information on what you can borrow from the Dartmouth Library collection and all the items you also have access to from other libraries.


Most items may be renewed up to three times by signing into your account, via phone, email, or in person. (Exceptions include recalls, course reserves and non-print materials. These must be physically returned.)

A minimum loan period has been established to avoid premature renewals.

  • 365-day items can be renewed after 270 days.
  • 120-day items can be renewed after 90 days.
