Borrowing Material

What material can be borrowed?

Most books in the Biomedical and Medical Center Libraries can be borrowed. For most users, the loan period is four weeks. Some categories of borrowers have a shorter loan period, and some items may be borrowed for shorter periods of time.

Most journals at the libraries are library-use only to ensure that they are always available. Reference books are also library-use only.

The library's catalog, Roger, will tell you whether an item is available for borrowing or is for library use only.

How Do I Borrow Materials?

For UCSD staff, students and faculty, your UCSD photo ID card is your library card. For other categories of users, please read our page about library cards.
