University Library

Lending Policy — Faculty, Staff, Emeriti

All Cal Poly Pomona University and Cal Poly Pomona Foundation faculty, staff and emeriti are governed by this policy.


All current faculty, staff & emeriti are automatically registered with the Library each quarter. To obtain full privileges you must create a library PIN/password by going to “My Library Account” from the Library’s web page. The Cal Poly Pomona Bronco Access Card is required when completing any type of library transaction, e.g., checking out materials, renewing items, placing holds, and for accessing databases remotely.


  • A total of 150 general circulating books may be borrowed until the end of the quarter. However, if another patron places a hold on a checked-out book, the due date will revert to the minimum 28 day loan period.
  • Media items may be checked out for a period of 7 days.
  • Reserve material checkout varies depending on the material. Checkout durations are determined by the instructor. Availability is first-come, first-serve. If someone has checked out course reserve materials check the online catalog for due date information.
  • Atlas/Maps may be borrowed until the end of the quarter.


Renewals may be requested online. Books can be recalled back to 28 days from the original checkout date.

Renewals are unlimited.


Lost or unreturned overdue books will be billed accordingly.


Failure to return or renew overdue materials is subject to suspension of library privileges until all materials are returned or fees for lost material are paid. At the time of payroll clearance all privileges are blocked and the final pay warrant will be held until fees are paid in full. Patrons who fail to pay fees will be sent to the California Francise Tax Board for payment.


In order to prevent the theft of books and Library materials, State Law authorizes patron detention when suspected of committing “Library Theft”. Faculty or staff attempting to leave the library without properly checking out library materials will have their names noted and forwarded (for repeat offenders) to the Vice President’s office for potential disciplinary action.
