Books for Checkout

The library has a small collection of Books, NCLEX and other test materials that students may borrow for a loan period, which is usually 1-2 weeks. You are welcome to borrow materials from another SMU Campus. You can check out items using the Self-Checkout online form. Library materials may be renewed if there are no requests from other students.  You can do this online or by contacting the library.

Requesting Books and Articles 

The library can assist students in obtaining journal articles and books that are not available in an SMU library.   These requests may be submitted directly to the Graziano Library the Request Library Materials form.
