Library Cards

UNCG students, faculty and staff should present their current UNCG ID to borrow materials. ID’s presented with unrecognizable photos will require additional picture ID.

IDs are not transferrable.

UNCG faculty can authorize other employees to borrow books and journals on their accounts.

  • Faculty should fill out an Authorization to Borrow Books/Journals for UNCG Faculty form and send it to the Check Out Desk.
  • The authorized borrower must present their own picture ID when borrowing.
  • Borrowed items will be checked out on the authorizing faculty member’s account.

Loan Periods

Notice: Effective May 12, 2014, loan periods for all items loaned for 3 weeks will be increased to 30 days when items are borrowed or renewed on or after May 12.

Renewals

All borrowers may renew general stacks and other specific collections materials online using My Library Account or in person at the Check Out Desk. (View Create a Password tutorial.)

Renewing extends due dates from the date renewed, not the date due.

Online renewals are not possible when

  • The borrowers account has expired. No renewal due date will extend past the account expiration date.
  • When specific items have been requested by other borrowers.
  • For UNCG Staff, when the borrower owes library fines or fees which must be satisfied at the time of renewal.

For UNCG Staff, online renewals are only possible on or before the due dates.

Renewing online and at a service desk both count towards the number of times an item can be renewed consecutively.

Reserve materials may not be renewed online. 3-day and 1-week reserves may be renewed once in person at the Check Out Desk.
