Borrowing Policy for CC Faculty
Books circulate to faculty for six months, but may be recalled for another user after two weeks. Faculty may renew loans one time on TIGER or by calling the Circulation Desk at 389-6184. Books circulate to visiting faculty for six months or less depending on the length of time on campus. The expiration date for visiting faculty accounts will be set at time of registration at the Circulation Desk.
To maintain an accurate physical inventory of the collection, we ask faculty to return books after one year. If still needed, books may be checked out again at that time. Overdue fines are not charged to faculty, but faculty are charged replacement costs for materials that are lost or damaged. Materials that have been overdue for more than six months will be assumed lost and faculty may be billed for replacement costs. Faculty who will be out of the Colorado Springs area for sabbatical or other extended periods of time should return all library materials before departing.
Tutt Library purchases DVD’s and Videos at the request of faculty members for use within the classroom or as supplementary material to support a specific course. Faculty may check out ten videos/DVD’s at a time. The loan period is 30 days, with one renewal allowed. Videos and DVD’s may be recalled at any time if needed for instruction. If you need to borrow more than ten videos or DVD’s, ask a circulation supervisor. To place videos or DVD’s on reserve for a class, speak to Marianne Aldrich, Circulation Services Coordinator at 389-6189.
Materials borrowed through Interlibrary Loan have due dates that are set by the owning library. It is important that these borrowed materials be returned on time.
Items borrowed through Prospector have a 21 day check-out time and one 21 day renewal. Check-outs and renewals are set system-wide for all participating libraries so extension of due dates beyond 42 days is not allowed. Replacement for lost or damaged items will be billed at the Amazon price chosen by the library and a $25 processing fee. Replacement charges for bound journals from Pascal (storage) are set at $400 and items borrowed from The Center for Research Libraries can be $1000. Faculty members who check out and then loan Prospector items to students are responsible for the return or cost to replace them.
Periodicals and reference material
Three-day checkout to faculty. No renewals. Exceptions must be approved by a reference librarian.
