The number of books you can check out depends on what type of library user you are. There are also different limits depending on where you got the book:

  • Undergraduate students: 15 books
  • Graduate students: 20 books
  • Faculty/Staff: no limit
  • Friends of the Library: 3 books

GIL Express

All KSU Library users can have a maximum of 100 books checked out through GIL Express. Community members with Friends of the Library cards cannot check out books through GIL Express.
