Renewals

Books, audio-visuals, CD-ROMs, and software can be renewed for additional loan cycles (according to the above chart) effective the date the renewal action is taken. With the exception of Reserve Materials, renewals can be accomplished in person, by telephone, or online using the Voyager system.

NOTE: All borrowed library materials must be returned to the Library at the completion of each semester. If any items are needed for the next semester, they can be renewed at that time in person.

See the Library's renewal instructions.

Recalls

All students, faculty and staff may borrow books for an initial 14 day loan period (5 days for audio-visual or CD-ROM/software items) before the item becomes subject to Recall.

After the initial loan period, a Recall request may be placed on any discharged item through the Library (in person or using Voyager). A recall notice will be sent via e-mail to the current borrower of the item. A revised due date will then be assigned to the item in place of the original due date. The borrower with the item is expected to return the item as soon as possible, at least by the new due date. If the item is not returned as requested, a fine or replacement fee will be levied upon the borrower (see overdue fines/item replacement fees below).

Overdue & Lost Materials

Overdue/lost materials policies exist so that library materials will remain available to everyone in a timely and efficient manner. The date the item is to be returned to the Library (the “due date”) is included on the printed check-out slip provided at the time the item is checked out.  Each item’s “due date” can also be verified in the Patron Information module within the Voyager system.

Overdue Fines

Library users will not be charged overdue fines for normal circulating items held beyond the designated due date.  However, they may later become subject to “lost item” fees described in the paragraphs below.

Fines will be charged on the following: Recalled items, Reserve items, Interlibrary Loan items, and special permission items (i.e., non-circulating items loaned by special permission).

Recalled Items
50 cents per day
$10.00 maximum
Reserve Items
50 cents per hour

Courtesy & Overdue Notices

A courtesy notice is e-mailed to the borrower five days before the item is due. The notice is simply a reminder message to return (or renew) the item before its due date.

Three overdue notices are e-mailed to the borrower before the item is declared "lost" by the Proctor Library. The first overdue notice is sent 9 days after the due date; the second overdue notice is sent 18 days after the due date; the final overdue notice is sent 27 days after the due date.

These e-mail notices are sent to the borrower only as a courtesy. It is the responsibility of the borrower to keep track of due dates.

Lost Item Invoice

Materials not returned, or overdue thirty (30) days beyond the initial due date, will be considered “lost.”  A Lost Item Invoice to cover replacement of the items will be prepared and sent the borrower at each of the following addresses (if available): the borrower’s campus mail box, college email, and permanent mailing address.  The invoice will consist of two line entries for each overdue item:

1. Lost Item Processing fee:  $10.00 added to each item lost.

2. Lost Item Replacement cost: current list price – according to “amazon.com” or “barnesandnoble.com”, etc. – or the currently established “out of print” charge.

Ten (10) days after a Lost Item Invoice is sent, if no action has been taken or appeal made by the borrower, the invoice will be forwarded to the College ’s Office of Business Services for final billing.  Once the Office of Business Services receives and processes the invoice, the borrower will not be permitted to either renew or return the lost item--the Lost Item charges will be final.

Suspension of Borrowing Privileges

When a library user’s fee balance exceeds $75.00, the Library will suspend borrowing privileges.  Privileges will be restored as soon as outstanding fees are paid.

Disputing Fines

A borrower should discuss a disputed notice or invoice with one of the Library’s Circulation Managers, or with the Director of Library Services, Michael Gallen.  If an appeal is found necessary, this can be presented to the Associate  Dean of Academic Affairs for final resolution.
