Borrowing Policy

New policy effective October 1, 2007: New titles will be available to circulate for a period of 28 days*, with a single renewal for an additional 28 days*. This policy applies to all patron groups. Once the FDU Library has owned the material for 90 days, then it will be available for the loan periods specified in the chart below. New titles will not be available to persons outside of the FDU community (through InterLibrary Loan) during this 90 day period.

*Some titles in the Giovatto Library are only available for 14 days, with a single renewal for an additional 14 days. These books are clearly marked as "14 Day" books.

Media: All circulating media (DVDs, CDs, audio books, video games etc.) are available to be checked out for a period of 7 days with a single renewal of an additional 7 days. Overdue fines for DVDs, audio books and video games are $1.00 per day if returned late.


Late Fees for Reserve Materials: Any reserve materials that are checked out will be subject to a $25/day fee for each day it is overdue.

VALE Reciprocal Borrowing: This program allows FDU faculty and staff to check out books from other participating NJ academic institutions. Click here for more information on this program.
