Overdue Notices

The library sends a reminder via e-mail that items will soon be due.  

Material “Hold” and “Recall”

Any item may be recalled by another person  anytime after the loan period for the item.  If an item has been requested by another person, the initial borrower may not renew the item.  Borrowers are responsible for returning items requested by another person. This ensures the availability of all materials to all members of the St. Edward's University community.  You may request a checked out item from from Library Search.

Missing Materials

Please come by the Library Information Desk for assistance if you cannot find an item on the shelf.

Delinquent

Patrons are ‘delinquent’ when borrowed materials are overdue or fees are unpaid.  Patrons  with books or any other items due and/or with fines should pay their fines to avoid being barred from enrolling in classes.  Patrons with books due and/or fines imposed past one semester must clear these fines in order to order transcripts or borrow additional library materials. For any questions concerning library accounts, call (512) 416-5869 or e-mail library@stedwards.edu.

Use of Off-campus Libraries

St. Edward’s University community members may borrow books directly from many other libraries in Texas through the TexShare Library Card Program.  This program allows students, faculty, and staff to borrow books from area public and private universities and colleges as well as public libraries.

Interlibrary Loan

If the library does not own the book or have access to the full text of a journal article which you need, you may request the item through Interlibrary Loan

Libraries all over the world participate in Interlibrary Loan (ILL) in a cooperative effort to provide articles, books, and other materials to researchers, students, and others.

St. Edward's University Alumni and TexShare Visitors

The public is welcome to use any of the materials in the Munday Library. However, in order to check materials out of the library, a Munday Library Courtesy Borrower's Card must be shown at the Library Information Desk. The library reserves the right to deny a Munday Library Courtesy Borrower Card to those who consistently disregard the due date of library materials (see “Loan Periods and Number of Items” table above).  Visitors are subject to fines for overdue materials and charges for lost materials.

We ask that Courtesy Borrowers recognize and respect our primary function: serving the current student body, staff, and faculty of St. Edward’s University. Refer questions regarding the Courtesy Borrower's policy, to the Library Information Desk at 512-416-5869 or e-mail library@stedwards.edu.

ID Card

Visitors who want to check out books from the Munday Library will need to bring a current, government issued ID and follow either TexShare visitor or Alumni visitor procedures in order to obtain a Munday Library Courtesy Borrower Card.

Alumni Visitors

Munday Library Courtesy Borrower Cards are issued for one year upon verification by Alumni Office.

TexShare Visitors from Area Libraries

Munday Library Courtesy Borrower Cards are issued for one semester. Checkout privileges are granted to TexShare cardholders 18 and older. Family cards are available for public library patrons only. Munday Library Courtesy Borrower Cards will expire on May 15, August 15, or December 15. Faculty visitor cards expire on August 15 of every year.

Borrowers are allowed to check out a maximum of 25 books and 5 library videos. Ebook lending policies vary.
