Borrowing Books

Your Stevens ID acts as your library card, and is used to check books out.

Books that you have borrowed from the library may be renewed online within the Stevens Library Catalog using your myStevens username & password. 

You may have up to 10 books checked out at the same time.

Reserve materials and selected textbooks are available for use inside the library only, in two-hour increments.  Reserve items are available at the Circulation Services Desk.  Bring your Stevens ID.

Laptop Lending Program

Laptops and iPads are available for use within the library. Once checked out from the Circulation Desk they can go anywhere within the building for a period of four hours.

See Tech Lending for further information.

Getting Books and Articles from Other Schools

Books, journal articles, and dissertations that are not available in the library or in a library subscription database can be requested through Interlibrary Loan / Document Delivery Services (ILL/DDS).  There is no charge for borrowing books through ILL/DDS, and books must be picked up in the library.  Article requests cost $1, dissertations cost $10.

Printing, Copying & Scanning

The printers are networked.  You can download the printer drivers onto your laptop and send print jobs to the networked printer.
