Book loan policy

For Faculty members
Rental Textbooks are the property of Textbook Rental and we allow faculty to borrow a book for the current semester ONLY. Please understand that this book is reserved for students and we reserve the right to ask for this book to be returned if a student needs the book for their class. Faculty will need their S0# to borrow a book, and they will sign a book loan agreement. We will only be able to loan out a book if we have extra copies.

For Graduate Assistants

We will allow a graduate assistant to borrow a book for the current semester ONLY. The department will need to provide us with a letter stating which class they are teaching for the semester. You can email us the letter with the information rentabook@semo.edu or send it through campus mail MS2020. Please provide the GA’s name, S0#, the course number they will be teaching. Please understand that this book is reserved for undergraduate students and we reserve the right to ask for this book to be returned if a student needs the book for their class.

For Departments

We will no longer be allowing departments to borrow a textbook without it being attached to either a faculty member or to a graduate assistant’s S0#.

All borrowed Textbook Rental books must be returned by the Monday after finals, or the replacement cost will be charged to your department or faculty account.
