Any McGill student is welcome to use the Library, but we ask that a few rules be followed:
- All students must present their McGill student I.D and provide their address and phone number.
- Books must not be marked or highlighted. Books found to be marked or highlighted must be replaced at the expense of the borrower. The same fine will be levied if books are brought back damaged or in worse condition than when originally taken out.
- Students may take out up to two books at a time for a period of two weeks. Overdue fines are 25 cents per day per book.
