BORROWING POLICIES AND REGULATIONS
A library card and College I.D. are required to use library resources. A fee of $5.00 will be imposed for reissuing a card. Borrowers from Memphis area academic libraries must bring a valid I.D. issued by their institution; a borrower user card will be issued by the LOC library staff. Loan periods are as follows: books and materials from the general collection-four weeks (28 days); books from the Sweeney Collection-one week (7 days) and CD's and videos-two nights for $1.00 each. The borrower must be present with the library card and the library material to check out the item again. Reference materials and periodicals are in-library use only. Fines vary: all circulating books- $0.25 each day; overnight reserves $0.50 for the first hour/$0.25 each succeeding hour; and CD's and videos-$1 per day each.
Our library cooperates with other United States libraries in inter-library loan (ILL) which is a service that borrows library materials that are not available in the Hollis F. Price Library. Students, faculty and staff working on special projects may request books or photocopies of articles. Photocopy requests are subject to copyright restrictions. The institution supplying the material sets the ILL periods and other restrictions on use. Requests may be made by consulting the librarian. The borrower should be prepared to pay for postage, borrowing fee, if required, and photocopying of the material. The request forms and the library materials must be retrieved from and returned to the Circulation/Reference Desk.
COURSE RESERVE MATERIALS
At the request of faculty, reserve materials are kept at the Circulation Desk to be read as class assignments. Some items may be checked out for overnight use three hours before closing and must be returned by 8:30 a.m. the following morning. Reserve materials are limited to use in the library only for two-hour time periods.
