Borrowing from the Library

RU faculty, students, and staff are welcome and encouraged to check out materials from our library collections.

Borrowing Materials from our Print Collection

To check out print materials, login to our Library Catalog to place a hold on the item(s) you wish to check out. A librarian will contact you within one business day to obtain a mailing address and discuss shipping options and fees.

For a $10 service fee, REALTOR® University faculty and students may check out up to six items at a time for a two-week period, with the option to renew if no other faculty or students have placed a hold request for the items. NOTE: Students are expected to purchase course-required textbooks. Any textbooks that are owned by the library are retained for reference use only and cannot be checked out by students.
