How many items can I check out?

For students, faculty, and staff at UNCW, there is no limit to the number of books you can check out from the General Collection. 

  • Featured new books, DVDs, VHS tapes and CDs have a limit of 7 items checked out at one time, in any combination (for example, 4 DVDs and 3 CDs).
  • Non-university borrowers may check out a total of 4 items from any part of the library's collection. The only exception to this is Government Documents; all users may check out an unlimited number of materials from Government Documents.
