Changes at the Library Summer 2017

Circulation Changes Taking Effect July 5

There are a number of circulation changes coming to University Libraries that will take effect on July 5th. The changes are as follows:

1 week checkouts now 2 weeks
Circulating movies, video games, and game consoles from the Main Library will now circulate for 2 weeks with 3 renewals. Previously, this material had circulated for 1 week with 1 renewal.

The library is instituting recalls in order to make material more accessible for patrons. All patron groups will be subject to recalls on material they have checked out. If an item is due more than three weeks from the date of the request, the due date on the item will be updated to be three weeks from the date of the request. If the item is due in less than three weeks, the due date will not be updated, but no renewals will be allowed on the item. Patrons will receive an email indicating that an item has been recalled, with the updated due date. Overdue fines for recalled items are $1 per day. All patron groups are subject to these fines.

Stack of books Faculty Renewals
Material checked out by Faculty members will be automatically renewed before the due date. This will include books and media material. Material will be automatically renewed when it has not been recalled, and the total number of renewals has not been met. Prospector items and Interlibrary loan items will not be automatically renewed.

Please contact Ryan Buller ( with questions.

Online Resources Login Procedure Change

Due to a change in the Eduroam wireless configuration on campus, we must modify our login procedure for authenticating into electronic resources (databases) on campus. Starting July 6, all of our resources will require authentication into the proxy with your PioneerWeb credentials in order to access electronic resources on campus, as well as off campus.

Current University affiliates (students, faculty, staff, etc) should use their DU ID number and password to log in when prompted. Once you have successfully logged into the system, it should not prompt you to log in again during a current web session.
