Loan Periods

A current CCS ID must be presented to borrow library materials. Loan periods for library materials are as follows:
Books: one semester
Vertical File Materials: two weeks

Periodicals: one day. This includes both current and back issues.

Closed Reserve Books: one day. Closed Reserve books are permanently shelved behind the circulation desk; this collection includes preserved and irreplaceable materials.

Open Reserve Books: Two weeks. Open Reserve books are shelved on the row next to the reference desk and have red tape on the spine above the call number level. These are heavily used, standard resources which are on open shelving for browsing and use in the library. They only need to be checked out if you wish to take them out of the library.

Reference Books: Reference books may not be taken out of the library.

Videos and Films: Please contact the library and reserve the video or film title that you will be using in your class at least two days ahead of your class date. The loan period is four hours. If you wish to preview a video and it has not been reserved by someone else, you may check it out overnight only. Materials may be returned to either library.
