UTSA Retiree Borrowing Policy
Retired faculty and retired professional and classified staff may borrow up to 5 books from the general collection at a time. They may also check out up to 4 DVDs and other media materials at one time.
The loan period for books is 28 days. The loan period for DVDs and other media materials is 7 days.
Interlibrary loan requests are accepted at $5 per request, with additional charges such as copying charges or postage if charged by the lending library. Log in here to view or submit an Interlibrary Loan request using our Get It For Me service.
You may renew your books once, if they have not been requested by another borrower. Books can be renewed by calling the John Peace Library (210-458-4574) or the Downtown Campus Library (210-458-2440), or in person at the Front Desk of either library.
Circulating items are fined at $0.50 per day with a maximum fine of $15.
All items which are borrowed from the UTSA Libraries are the responsibility of the borrower. Each patron should ensure that items are renewed or returned to the library by the due date specified. Due dates are printed and inserted in each borrowed item at the time of checkout. Payment for overdue fines is accepted by check or UTSA Guest Card. We do not accept cash. Further library service is not available until overdue material(s) are returned and/or fines have been paid.
