To support the faculty use the books bought from the research budget, after the books have been cataloged, the faculty can borrow them for one and a half years. The principal investigator should bring the staff ID to borrow. If the project assistant comes to borrow the books for the principal investigator, the assistant should present the ID card and the letter of authorization. When the books are due but still needed for research, the borrower can ask the main library to renew the titles.
During the research period, the titles are not available for request or reservation by another library patron. When the research is done or the loan is expired, the researcher should return the books to the library. The library will change the loan category from “for the research project” to “general” collection so that the patrons can read and borrow.
