Who may borrow books?

How long is the borrowing period?

The standard borrowing period for most materials is 28 days. Materials can be renewed one time for an additional 28 days.

ECC faculty and staff may borrow materials for one semester/term at a time. Periodicals and reference materials can be used in the library, but general circulation of those materials is not available.

Reserve items

Reserve items are set aside for a specific purpose – usually by a professor for students of a particular class.  Use the “Reserve List” function in the library catalog to identify items by either the professor’s name or the course number. 3 Reserve items may be charged out at 1 time. Reserve items circulate for two hours and cannot be removed from the library unless otherwise specified. Valid identification or driver’s license must be left at the Circulation Desk until the items are returned.

Audio-Visual Materials

Audiovisual materials circulate under the same terms as Reserve items, and cannot be taken outside of the library, unless by ECC faculty and staff. Valid identification is required for borrowing materials.


Occasionally, a checked-out book can be recalled by the library before the full borrowing period has ended. All books are subject to recall after 14 days.

Interlibrary Loan (ILL)

Interlibrary Loan (ILL) is a free way that books, eBooks, articles the library does not own can be requested from other libraries, and provided to our users. This process can take up to a week, depending on the material. You can submit an ILL request at [email protected].
