Borrowing

University Borrowers

Faculty, staff, researchers, graduate students and undergraduates must have a valid patron record in the library  management system and a University issued photo Husky One Card to borrow items from the Babbidge Library. 

Community Members

Residents of the state of Connecticut 18-years of age and older, may obtain a library issued community  borrowers card for borrowing.   Cost of the card is $50.00 per year (including all subsequent renewals).  

Library Materials

All borrowers are responsible for the care of items checked out and for their return by the due dates (and due time in the case of hourly/daily loans).   It is the borrower’s responsibility to monitor the due dates/due times of all items and return (or renew them if possible) by the due date or due date/time.

Long Overdue Items

Borrowers may be charged replacement costs and associated overdue fines for any items kept 27 days (or longer) past the due date.   Any items billed for replacement may be returned up to one year past the billing date if it is in good condition (as determined by the library).   The replacement cost for items returned in good condition would be refundable.
