While they are enrolled at APU, students have access to a large collection of print and online materials. Current students are automatically entered into the Libraries’ circulation database, which allows them to check out books and media and access online materials. Material check-out periods are as follows:
|Undergraduate Students||Graduate Students||Doctoral Students|
|Book checkout period||21 days||21 days||90 days|
|Media Checkout period||7 days||7 days||7 days|
|Number of renewals||18||18||4|
|LINK+ book checkout period||21 days||21 days||21 days|
|LINK+ media checkout period||7 days||7 days||7 days|
|LINK+ book renewal (media items may not be renewed)||21 days||21 days||21 days|
Items can be renewed through a student’s online library account.
Regional Campus, Online, and Off-Campus Students
APU regional campus, online, and off-campus students, faculty, and staff hold the same privileges and responsibilities as Azusa campus patrons, but their materials will be mailed (books, media, and kits) or emailed (articles) from the Azusa campus libraries. Mailing is free of charge, and prepaid return envelopes are included.
Books and media may be requested by selecting “By Mail” as the pickup location on the request screen in the library catalog. Articles may be requested through the ArticleReach option in the library’s databases and via the Article Finder form. More information is available on the Interlibrary Services page. Call (626) 815-6000, Ext. 3272, for any other questions regarding these transactions.
Check the library Tool for the location of the materials you need, and use LINK+ to request unavailable items.
