Books in high demand are held in Short Loan collections which are situated on the 3rd floor of the library. The loan period is only for 3 days. The content of the collection changes each year as new material is added, and items less heavily used are returned to their regular place on the shelves.
Method 1: Email the Library Collection Circulation Type Changing Request Form to Lib-USD@xjtlu.edu.cn.
Method 2: Directly submit the Library Collection Circulation Type Changing Request Form to 3rd floor circulation desk.
Short loan books are processed upon academic staffs' submission. Library staff processes short loan books on a first-come, first-served basis. For best results, we suggest that you submit short loan lists one month before the beginning of each semester.
Processing times are approximate and will vary depending on the time of the semester, the amount and availability of materials, and other factors. Library-owned materials needed for short loan are often out on loan and must be recalled before they can be processed. This can cause significant delays. Although we are committed to making short loan books available when needed, we cannot guarantee processing time.
With your university ID card, books can be checked out and in either at self-service machines on the 1st, 4th, and 8th floors, or at the Library Circulation Desk on the 3rd floor.
