Answer

Where to check out materials

Bring your SEU ID or Courtesy Borrowers card along with the items you wish to check out to the Library Services Desk, which is located near the front entrance of the library.

Loan Periods, Renewals and Item Limits

With your SEU login and password, you may access your library account and renew your own books through the My Library Account. The number of renewals that are permitted depends on your borrower type (see the table below). Renewals are not permitted if a book is overdue or has been placed on hold. Ebooks will disappear from your computer or device, so need to worry about returns.

To request renewal of Interlibrary Loan (ILL) materials, please contact the ILL department in advance of the due date at (512) 448-8738 or illhelp@stdwards.edu.

For information on fines, see our Fines and Replacements Policy.

Courtesy / Alumni Borrowers

The public is welcome to use any of the materials in the Munday Library. However, in order to check materials out of the library, a Courtesy Borrower's Card must be shown at the Library Information Desk. The library reserves the right to deny a Courtesy Borrower Card to those who consistently disregard the due date of SEU materials.  Interlibrary loan privileges are not available to Alumni/Courtesy Borrowers.

We ask that Courtesy Borrowers recognize and respect our primary function: serving the current student body, staff, and faculty of St. Edward’s University.

If there are any questions regarding the Courtesy Borrower's policy, please call the Library Information Desk at 512-416-5869.

SEU Alumni: Cards are issued for one year upon verification by Alumni Office. Check-out restriction of 5 books with one renewal. Subject to fines for overdue materials and charges for lost material, plus a $10.00 processing fee. No grace period.

TexShare: Cards are issued for one semester. Checkout privileges are granted to TexShare cardholders 18 and older. Family cards are available for public library patrons only. Checkout restrictions of 5 books with one renewal. Subject to fines for overdue materials and charges for lost materials, plus $10.00 processing fee. No grace period. Card expires on May 15, August 15, or December 15. Faculty cards expire on August 15 of every year.

Non-SEU: Cards are issued for one year upon payment of a $40.00 non-refundable fee. Check-out restrictions of 5 books and one renewal. Subject to fines for overdue materials and charges for lost materials, plus a $10.00 processing fee. Cardholder must be 18 years old. No grace period. Proper identification must be presented. All other restrictions apply.
