Renewals

Books, audiobooks, CDs and DVDs can be renewed in person, by telephone, or online via the Voyager system. All Reserve materials, laptops, graphing calculators and headphones must be renewed in person at the Circulation Desk with your Flagler College ID card.

NOTE: You must return all items to the Library at the completion of each semester. If you need any items for the next semester, you may renew them in person.

See the Library's renewal instructions.

Recalls & Holds

You may recall an item currently loaned to another borrower. The recall process generates an email notice to the borrower requesting the item be returned within 14 days (5 days for CDs and DVDs). You would request a recall whenever you need an item to be returned as soon as possible.

You may also place a hold on an item currently loaned to another borrower. The borrower will not be notified via email of the request, but will not be able to renew the item. When the item is returned, you will receive an email notifying you of its availability for pickup. You would request a hold for any item which you do not need not needed immediately.

Please ask a Library staff member for assistance on placing recalls or holds.

Overdue Fines & Lost Item Fees

You will not be charged overdue fines for normal circulating items. However, you may be held responsible for losing an item (see below).

Overdue fines will be applied to recalled items, reserve items, Interlibrary Loan items, laptops, graphing calculators, and headphones.

Courtesy & Overdue Notices

You will be emailed a courtesy notice 5 days before an item is due. This notice is simply a reminder to return or renew the item before the due date.

You will be emailed three overdue notices before an item is considered lost – 9 days after the due date, 18 days after the due date, and 27 days after the due date.

These email notices are sent as a courtesy. It is your responsibility to keep track of when items are due.

Lost Items & Billing

Any materials not returned (or overdue) 30 days beyond the initial due date are automatically considered lost. In this case we will send an email to your Flagler College email account and an alternate email if provided, informing you of the total amount due if the lost items are not returned to the Library. This amount consists of:

  1. Lost Item Processing fee: $10.00 for each item lost
  2. Lost Item Replacement cost: current list price for the item according to Amazon.com, or the currently established out-of-print charge

If you take no action within 10 days of receiving this email, the amount due will be forwarded to the Office of Business Services for final invoicing.

Suspension of Borrowing Privileges

Your borrowing privileges will be suspended if:

  • Your fines exceed $50.00
  • A laptop or graphing calculator is not returned within 3 days of the due date

You must pay any outstanding fines to have borrowing privileges restored.

Disputing Fines

You should discuss a disputed notice or invoice with the Access Services Librarian, Caitlin Baker, or with the Director of Library Services, Brian Nesselrode. If an appeal is found necessary, this can be presented to the Vice President of Academic Affairs, Alan Woolfolk, for final resolution.
