Circulation Policy

Books

The loan period for books is 21 days. A book may be renewed unless another patron has placed a hold on the book. Books may continue to be renewed until the end of the semester when all items must be returned. 

Audio-Visual Materials

AV materials, which include Blu-ray, DVDs, CDs, videotapes,  and audiotapes circulate for 7 days. Items may be renewed unless a hold has been placed on the item, and renewals are limited to 10. 

Reserve Materials

Reserve items are checked out on an hourly basis. Since the time period varies for each reserve item, please check the slip printed with each check-out to find the exact time a reserve item is due. The information included with each item gives the length of the borrowing period and indicates if the item is allowed to leave the library. Failure to return a reserve item to the circulation desk by the designated hour will result in a fine of $1.00 per hour per item.

Recalled Materials

Any item that has been recalled by the library staff will be given a new due date that is earlier than the original due date. 

Interlibrary Loan and MelCat Materials

MelCat items have a 4 week checkout period, with one 4 week renewal allowed. More information about MeLCat and ILL is available here.

Overdue and Lost Materials

Mossey Library is now fine free. Fees for lost or overdue materials are included in our Lost or Damaged Materials Policy.

Registration/Transcripts

All library materials must be returned and all fees paid before you will be allowed to register for the next semester. Transcripts also will not be sent until your library record is clear.
