    4. Items may be renewed or checked out again as long as there are no waiting requests from other library users, and the borrower has an active KU Library Borrower Card and owes less than $80 in library charges.

    2. Collections must be used on-site in the library's reading room.

The HINU Student ID Card must be presented each time library services are requested.
    2. HINU Faculty and Staff must present a government issued photo ID card and proof of employment with HINU. Faculty and Staff will be asked to complete an application form in order to collect contact information, and to complete this process annually to retain privileges with the KU Libraries.
