Online Library Orientation: Library Policies

Library Policies

  • Library Cards:  Your Martin ID is your library card.  It is used to check out materials and to access other library services.  Your library card number is your ID number from your class schedule, followed by the letters MR. ID cards are made in the bookstore, but you must visit the library and have library staff enter your library card number into the library system before you check out books or place holds for the first time.  (If all of your classes are online and you don't have a Martin ID card, the library will be happy to set up your account by e-mail.  Just e-mail us at )

  • Checkout Limit:  You may have a total of 6 items checked out at a time, including up to 2 DVDs.  Items are due back in 2 weeks and may be renewed twice, for a total of 6 weeks, unless someone else is waiting for them.
