Faculty Toolkit: Checkouts

You can check out books and other items at the 2nd floor Ask Here Desk or the nearby self-checkout station; please remember to bring your MSUB UCard, which is also your library card. To renew loans, please log into your library account or call 406-657-1662. Although the library does not generate overdue fees for items not returned by their due dates, you will be charged for the cost of replacements if items are lost or are not returned within a reasonable period.


Most of the library's physical/print materials are available to check out for one calendar year:

  • Books
  • Periodicals (journals, magazines)
  • DVDs
  • Government documents


Further materials are available for in-library use, but may not be checked out:

  • Newspapers
  • Reference (style guides, dictionaries, encyclopedias)
  • Special collections
