    Library materials are due at the time and date on the due date slip, or as stated when borrowed, renewed, or recalled.

  • Renew 

    You may renew items yourself by logging in to Your Library Account. Follow the instructions to view your library record and renew materials. Undergraduate students, alumni, and special borrowers may renew most items once, unless a hold or recall has been placed by another library user. Faculty and graduate students may renew most items twice. Interlibrary loan items must be renewed through Illiad.

  • Request 

    Current students, staff, and faculty of the University of the Pacific are eligible to request library-owned items by using the "Request It!" feature in our online catalog, or PacificSearch.  Requested books will be retrieved from the shelves and placed on hold at the Pacific Library Service Desk of your choice.

  • Link+ 

    Materials not included in the library's collection may be requested through Link+ which is located on the PacificSearch page. Only books are available via Link+. If you need articles, DVD, etc., please see regular interlibrary loans. This service is only available to current University of the Pacific Stockton and Sacramento student, staff, and faculty. Contact the ILL department at 209.946.2196 or ill@pacific.edu with questions.

  • Interlibrary Loan 

    Materials not included in the library's collection may be requested through interlibrary loan (ILL) using ILLiad. Additional information about our ILL services can be found in the Interlibrary Loan FAQ. Only University of the Pacific students, faculty, and staff are eligible. Contact the ILL department at 209.946.2196 or ill@pacific.edu with questions.

  • Fines 

    Materials are subject to replacement fees based on the cost of individual items lost. Interlibrary loans are also subject to replacement fees in the amount charged to Pacific from the lending library. Accounts with overdue items will be blocked. 

  • Recalls 
    • All circulating materials are subject to recall after 2 weeks, meaning that another borrower can request the item and a new due date will be issued to the original borrower.
    • Failure to return a recalled item within 7 days will result in a loss of further borrowing privileges until the item is returned.
