Circulation Policies

Circulation of Library materials is managed through the Library’s Circulation Desk.  Who may use the John Bulow Campbell Library?

Circulating books for all students are due four weeks after the date of check-out. If the due date falls on a day the Library is closed the next open date is used. At check-out the date due slip in the back of the book is stamped with the appropriate due date. Circulating books may be renewed up to two times, unless single-copy items have been requested by another user. Phone renewals are acceptable during the Library’s open hours. (Voice mail renewals cannot be accepted.) Overdue fines for books are 25 cents per day per book. For lost books patrons are charged the actual replacement cost, plus a $20.00 processing fee.*

Audiocassettes, videocassettes, and other circulating non-print items may be checked-out for 7 days. Videocassettes may not be renewed; all other non-print items may be renewed up to two times. Overdue fines are $1.00 per day for videos, and 25 cents per day for all other non-print items. The fee for a lost item is the actual replacement cost, plus a $20.00 processing fee.*

Periodicals, Reference items, and Special Collections materials may not be checked-out of the Library building.

Items needed for Reserve that are checked out will be immediately recalled. Any circulating item may be recalled for the use of another Library user four weeks after the initial check-out date. Overdue recalls will be charged a fine of $1.00 per day.* Patrons may request that an item checked out to someone else be recalled and held for them when returned. The Library, however, cannot divulge who has any item.

Patron Library records become delinquent when one of the following occurs: 1) more than $10.00 is owed to the Library in fines or fees; 2) items checked out to the patron are overdue; 3) the number of items checked-out has exceeded the person’s limit; and 4) abuse of ILU privileges have been reported to the JBCL. Students must clear their record before being able to check-out any Library items or graduate.

*Charges over $10 may be paid via credit card between 8:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday.
