Those using library materials, whether in or out of the building, are responsible for any deterioration in the condition of the material while in their use, and for the safe and timely return of the materials.
Designated return areas are the following:
- The Circulation Desk for all material that has been checked out (including material borrowed through Prospector)
- The ILL Office for all material from Interlibrary Loan
- The after-hours outside return bin located along the front of the building
- The tops of microform cabinets for microforms
- Bins on the end of library stacks located throughout the library, for the return of materials which have not been checked out.
Borrowers who lose or damage library material will be assessed a replacement charge. If a lost item is found and returned in good condition before the replacement has been ordered, the replacement cost will be refunded. Please see library policy regarding replacement of lost or damaged material.
Overdues and Fines
Students are not charged for overdue books and government documents. If any item becomes 3 weeks overdue, your library account will be blocked until the item is returned. The library’s main goal is not to penalize or make money, but to have materials returned so that others in the CC community will have access to them.
$2.00 a day for each overdue video or DVD (with a maximum fine of $10.00 per item)
$5.00 per hour for each overdue reserve item and immediate block of all circulation privileges.
First Overdue Notice is emailed one week after item is due.
Second Overdue Notice is emailed two weeks after item is due informing you that your account will be blocked if your library item becomes 3 weeks overdue.
Third Overdue Notice is emailed three weeks after the due date. Your library account is blocked after books become 3 weeks overdue. This is the final overdue notice before you are billed.
Billing Notice is mailed to your Worner Box four weeks after the due date. You are billed the current cost of the item plus a $10.00 processing fee. If the item is returned in good condition before it has been re-ordered or charges sent to your student account in the Business Office, the replacement charge will be waived. Items returned after billing has gone to the Business Office will be credited to your student account, but the $10.00 processing fee will remain.
You are responsible for the timely return of all materials, whether or not you receive any reminder or overdue notices from the library.
Holds and Recalls
A hold may be placed on material that is already checked out by clicking on the “Request” button in the TIGER catalog.
Material is subject to recall if the current borrower has had it for more than two weeks. Items recalled for reserve must be returned immediately.
If an item is recalled it must be returned as soon as possible. Fines will accrue at $5.00 per day.
Recalled material must be picked up within ten days of the date of the notice of availability. If it is not picked up within this time, it will be returned to the shelves or given to the next person on the waiting list, if one exists.
The following types of materials do not usually circulate. However, special permission may be given for a special need, so consult a librarian.
- Reference materials
- Special Collection materials (no exceptions)
- Any material marked “non-circulating” (e.g., “Library use only” or “not to leave the library”)
- Most maps
- Some Government Documents which are “non-circulating”
Confidentiality of Records
