Materials on reserve for courses must be used on site and the loan period cannot exceed 2 hours unless the professor gives permission or more time. If the borrowed equipment/materials are damaged or malfunction while in use, the borrower must contact the Business Library immediately.
The Consortium Loan Service (CLS) is a way to obtain books and articles that are not available at your home library.
The Howard University Libraries maintain formal agreements with libraries worldwide to share materials with, or provide photocopies to, other libraries. This service is available to Howard University students, faculty and staff only.
