Penrose and Summit books can be renewed once for an additional six weeks. Materials that check out for six days can also be renewed once for an additional six days. 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.
