Circulating items: books, noncurrent magazines, reserve materials, DVDs and video recordings.
Non-circulating items: reference materials, Textbook Bank materials (library use only), electronic devices (library use only), and current issue magazines. These items must be used inside the library.
The loan period is four weeks for most items, with unlimited renewal as long as no requests exist for the item. The Textbook Bank and Early Childhood Materials Center are the only collections with varying loan periods. Loan periods for Textbook Bank items are determined by the materials' owner. ECMC materials can be borrowed for two weeks.
The number of items borrowed is limited by borrower status. Students, faculty and staff may borrow up to 30 items; community members may borrow up to 15 items.
Materials may be transferred from one campus library to the other; this can take up to three business days.
Requests for materials from the other campus library and renewals may be made online, in person, by phone, or by email. When an item is available for pickup, patrons will be emailed through their college student account. Community borrowers will be contacted via e-mail or phone. Patrons have one week to pick up their materials.
All items may be returned to either campus library. Video recordings and DVDs should not be placed in outdoor book drops.
Members of the college community may borrow items at other participating institutions through the Library’s participation in VIVA’s Cooperative Borrowing Program. This program allows students, faculty, and staff at VIVA institutions to borrow materials on-site from any participating library; items must also be returned at that library. Details can be found on VIVA’s site.
