Students must have a current St. Andrews ID card with a library bar code with them in order to check out and renew Library materials, including Laptops.

Books generally circulate for 28 days. All books must be returned to the Library at the end of each term.

There is a maximum of $5 per item. Unpaid fines will be charged to students' accounts through the Business Office at the end of each term.

Through our catalog, students can view their patron record, note the books they’ve checked out, check due dates, and renew. Sign in to Your Library Account in WorldCat using the barcode from your Student ID Card.  For help use the Library Account Research page.
