Check out material

Borrowing privileges are available to all faculty, staff and students of the KU Medical Center. Non-KU Medical Center individuals may purchase a membership for the Library, which will allow you to borrow library materials and use the Library's licensed databases within the Library.

Loan Periods

Exam & skills review books:
2 weeks with one 14-day renewal.

7 days. No renewals permitted.

2 hours, 1 day or 3 days, depending on the request of faculty. No renewals permitted.

Generally one week.

Materials may be renewed by calling (913) 588-7166.


Materials should be returned on or before the due date. Materials may be returned directly to the Library, or to one of our drop boxes. Drop boxes are located:

  • outside the library front entrance;
  • in Orr-Major building;
  • near the cafeteria in the Hospital.

These drop boxes are cleared only once per day. Time sensitive returns should be taken directly to the Library.


Keeping items past the due date will result in suspension of borrowing privileges and being billed for the cost of replacement. In addition, a $5.00 Labor Charge--for each late item--is added. This Labor Charge cannot be waived even if the item is subsequently returned. Questions about overdues may be directed to the Circulation staff at:
