Eligible Borrowers and Responsibilities Policy

  • All faculty, staff and registered students of the Penn State College of Medicine and Penn State Health Milton S. Hershey Medical Center, who have a valid HMC/PSU photo ID (including faculty, staff, and students from ALL Penn State Campuses)
  • Non-University health care professionals can be issued a valid Penn State library card. This card can be used to borrow material from any Penn State library.  Inquire at the service desk or call 717-531-8626. 
  • Borrowers are required to present a valid library card (Penn State ID+ or library issued card) for checkout of material.
  • All borrowed materials are subject to recall. All materials returned after recall due date are subject to daily fines.
  • Borrowers are financially responsible for all materials charged out on their cards. Borrowers should report a lost or stolen card to library staff at once to minimize responsibility for its unauthorized use.
  • Borrowers should note time and date that material is due. Overdue notices are sent as a courtesy. Failure to receive notification does not relieve the borrower of the obligation to return materials when they are due or justify a reduction in fines.
  • Returned checks due to insufficient funds will result in a service charge of $25.00.
