Patrons may borrow up to five resources in one session. The loan period for print resources is two weeks. After a two-week period loans may be renewed or recalled if required by another user. A reminder notice will be e-mailed three (3) days before books are due. Overdue notices will be sent approximately every three days until the item goes into billing. Notices are sent to the email address the library has on file for you.

Print journals are not available for loan. A book return is available for return of library resources. The book return is located at the entrance ground floor of the University.

The Information Desk is located at the main entrance of the Library and is the main service point for Library services. Services include Reference, Ask a Librarian, Check-In, Self-Check-Out, Reserves, Interlibrary loan (ILL), Document Delivery and Outreach and Training.

Reference Services may be accessed via email, phone, the website or by visiting the Library. An Ask a Librarian service is also available via the website. Librarians are also available in person for consultation for in-depth queries. A literature request form is available for onsite consultations.

Reference desk staff may also assist in general queries for use of library resources. In some cases, it may be necessary to point and guide patrons to other sources of information, when they are not available at Al Maktoum Medical Library.
