Borrow, Request & Renew Material

Students, Faculty & Staff

Review the following guidelines to learn more about borrowing materials from the library. This includes length of loan periods, number of renewals allowed, and replacement charges. Borrowers will be asked to present a Franklin ID or driver’s license to check out materials.


Alumni & Public Patrons

Franklin University alumni and public patrons are offered limited library services. Please note that alumni and public users will be asked for ID to verify their status. An alumnus is defined as a patron who has obtained a degree from Franklin University. A public patron is defined as a patron who is neither a current Franklin student, faculty, staff, or alumnus, nor a current student, faculty, or staff member of an OhioLINK institution.
