Circulation policies are essentially the same on all Miami University campuses. For specifics on library services offered at branch campuses please see the policies of the Hamilton and Middletown libraries
Miami University Students, Faculty, and Staff need a valid Miami ID with a barcode to borrow circulating materials. Other persons wishing to check out materials should contact the King Library Circulation Desk for information at (513) 529-4141.
Borrowers not affiliated with the University may obtain an Affiliated Patrons of the Libraries card by completing an application during business hours Monday - Friday in the Dean's Office (225 King Library) and by contributing $25 tax-deductible donation cash or check annually. This card does NOT provide off-site access to library databases.
The form may be filled in online but must be printed and signed by both parties and include their Banner+ numbers. Faculty are responsible for all materials checked out by the person designated, and are responsible for timely returns and renewals.
Items can be returned to any library. Book drops on the Oxford Campus are also located in the Shriver Center and in Alexander Dining Hall.
Items from the circulating collection may be renewed unless another patron has placed a request for that item.
