Borrowing from other Libraries

Holders of valid library cards from member libraries of area public libraries may borrow books from the general collection by having a “Guest” patron account created. Borrowers from other I-Share libraries already have patron accounts and would only need to present their cards. People who are not members of either an area library or I-Share may obtain material from Cullom-Davis Library by submitting an Interlibrary Loan request through their home library.

If you received a fine notice and have questions, you can contact

Students, faculty, and staff from Bradley and other I-Share member institutions are not charged daily overdue fines for material that is returned after the due date.

  • This includes both material borrowed from the Cullom-Davis Library and any material ordered from other libraries in the I-Share consortium.
  • This policy does not apply to patrons with Guest or Alumni accounts. Patrons with Guest or Alumni accounts will be charged $0.10/ day up to a maximum of $10.00.
  • This policy does not apply to laptop computers, Kindles, new books, or Reserves material.
  • Library material not returned or renewed 28 days after the due date will be declared “Lost” and the borrower will be charged a replacement fee for the cost of the missing material, and a processing fee to cover the cost of acquiring and cataloging the replacement. The lost material policy for other I-Share libraries is similar although the number of days necessary to become “Lost” may vary slightly from institution to institution.
  • The overdue fine policies for material borrowed from non-I-share sources are determined by the lending institution and are not covered by this change.
  • No refunds will be given for material that has been paid for and is later located.
