How Does Library Borrowing Work At Goddard?
We help in person with research and gathering the bulk of your library materials while you’re on campus. Once at home, we support you virtually and mail additional materials to you.
What Can I Borrow and How Long?
Very generally speaking, students and faculty may borrow up to 30 items from the Eliot D. Pratt Library Collection for the whole semester. Items we don’t have will be purchased for the collection or borrowed from other libraries. We do not have overdue fines, but we do charge for lost items.
Check out our Borrowing Quick Facts Guide for more information.
Staff & Community Members (Including CVHSI & WGDR) are also eligible for library privileges. More on those policies under About LITS in the menu.
You Create The Library
Our general rule is: if we can buy it, we will buy it. (with some necessary restrictions)
