Clark adheres to the following policies as part of its mission to provide resources and services that support teaching and research across the University. We are proud to provide a welcoming setting that is conducive to independent learning and a collaborative educational process for all. If you have any questions regarding the policies listed on this page, please contact us.

Books from the Goddard Library may be borrowed by students, faculty, and staff under the following policies:

  • Undergraduates – 28 days
  • Graduate students – semester loan
  • Faculty – semester loan
  • Honors students – semester loan
  • All other borrowers – 28 days


  • Leisure books can be charged out for two weeks and then renewed twice for all patrons.
  • Reference materials and periodicals may not be borrowed.

Books may be renewed up to three times if they are not requested by another borrower. Visit the library website to renew your materials. Items recalled by another patron and those so overdue that they are considered lost cannot be renewed and must be returned to the library.

The Goddard Library accepts book donations with the donor’s acknowledgment that decisions about adding materials to the collections rest with library staff. When materials are not added to the collections, the library reserves the right to dispose of materials through sale or other means.
