All Patrons (that's you) have a guarenteed loan period of three weeks. This means that when you borrow a book, you are allowed to have that book for that period. Some patrons have extended loan periods, like graduate students and faculty. These extended dates are a courtesy to allow for more in depth research into a particular text. Even in these instances, only three weeks of access is guaranteed, after that the item is subject to recall, meaning that any other patron wishing to use the item can recall it.

If you are out of the country and a recall is placed on a book that you borrowed, it is your responsibility to get the item back to the library by the recall date. This means that the patron is responsible for shipping the item back.
