ITL Lending Library

How This Library Works

The ITL Lending Library is a system that allows users to borrow books on a variety of teaching, learning, assessment, SOTL, and professional development topics. An inventory of our library can be found below sorted by topic. The process on how to borrow and share books will also be addressed below. If you have any spare books you’d like to share, any contribution you make to the lending library will be appreciated and acknowledged in the book as a donation! 

Take a Book. 

If you see a book of interest, you can sign out the book using this link. You may also come to the office in person to use the sign-out sheet. Through the link, you will have the choice to have your book delivered to your office through campus mail or to pick it up in-person. After the form is completed, you have signed your book out. Once you have finished your book, please return it to the ITL office. Each book has a loaning period of one month (eg., check-out date: 8/28/2023, check-in date: 9/28/2023). You must return your book upon the end of the loaning period. You may reserve the book two more times.  

Share a Book. 

If you have books that may be beneficial to other users of the ITL Lending Library, please contact our office to arrange pick up or drop off. For sharing books, we suggest you include books you would recommend, books for professional development, and/or books that aid in teaching.
