Renewals are not available for students, alumni, staff and community members. The loan period for books is 6 weeks with no renewals. Please contact Access Services at 509-527-5192 or ill@whitman.edu with questions. 

Faculty may renew Whitman books twice, but books must be returned at the end of the spring semester after the third year from original checkout. While faculty may renew books for up to three years, the Library must balance the need for researchers' long-term use of library materials against our need to periodically review the condition of materials. We strongly encourage their return for use by others.
