Book Loan and Lending Library

The DARTS program provides Transfer and Returning students monetary credit towards purchasing textbooks for the first academic year at UC Merced. We understand that textbooks are costly and can put a financial strain on our transfer and returning student population. 

When you buy your textbooks, you can use a DARTS account instead of your student account when purchasing and at the end of the semester, just return your textbooks that were purchased with the DARTS account to our office. This loan only applies to physical textbooks and does not apply to other materials such as access codes to online textbooks or in-class clickers. This loan also only applies to the Book Annex at the UC Merced campus and not online retailers such as Amazon, Chegg, or Barnes and Noble.

The Lending Library in our office has the same requirements, however textbooks here are exclusively for transfers and returning students and you may skip waiting in line at the book annex. Just check our library if we have your required textbook and return at the end of the semester! However, it is a first-come first-served basis, so show up as soon as you can before another student checks out the book you need!
