Extended Loan Period Pilot for G1 - G3 Grad Students Launched at Widener Library

March 12, 2004 - In response to a proposal from the FAS Library Committee, the Harvard College Library is launching a one-year pilot project for extended loan privileges for G1 – G3 GSAS students at Widener Library beginning Monday, March 15. Currently graduate students may borrow books for a 28-day period with the option to renew in 28-day increments up to five times. The pilot program extends the borrowing period to a term with the option to renew online up to five times.

Graduate students who wish to participate in the program must apply in person at the Library Privileges Office, Widener Library, Room 130, between 9:00 am and 4:45 pm, Monday through Friday, or at the Widener Circulation Desk after these hours and on weekends. Applicants will be eligible for the new privileges three business days after their application is submitted.

Extended loan borrowing privileges are valid at Widener Library only and apply only to regular circulating material. Due dates for extended privileges will be either February 10 or September 10, depending upon when the items are checked out. Materials may be renewed online. Overdue fines and replacement costs will be billed through the Harvard University Term Bill Office. This pilot program will run through March of 2005.
