Book/DVD Circulation

Most books may be checked out for three weeks.  If no one is waiting for the titles, you may then renew them for another three weeks.  There is no limit to the number of books you may check out.  DVDs are available for three-day loans.  Did you know that the library has more than 1,500 popular movies and TV series?  You may check out a maximum of three DVDs at a time.

Off Campus Access

When using the library's databases from off campus, you will need to enter your myDelVal credentials (the same as your DelVal email). If you have any trouble with this step, please contact us.
