Your NOVACard is also your library card and is required to check out materials.

Residents of the community may obtain a Community Patron card for limited borrowing privileges. Please contact your local campus library for details.

Loan Periods: The standard loan period is three weeks for books and one week for DVDs. Some items have restricted loan periods. Please see your campus library for more information.

Intercampus Loan: Many library materials can be sent from one campus to another. Click on the Request tab for instructions on how to request an item from another campus.

Interlibrary Loan: Student requests for Interlibrary Loan are at campus discretion. Please contact your campus’s Interlibrary Loan Specialist for more information.
