The Library borrowing policy for faculty and staff are designed to accommodate your needs.
Print books in the DMU, Faculty Development and Leisure Reading collections, as well as journals, may be checked out for as long as they are needed. Notices are sent periodically as a reminder that the item is checked out to you. When you receive the reminder notice, please check to be sure that you know the location of the item. There is no need to respond to these reminder notices. One year after check-out, a notice is sent requesting that the item either be renewed or returned to the Library. At this time, please reply to the notice and request a renewal, or return the item to the Library if you are no longer using it. If we don't hear from you, and the item is not returned, we will assume that you know the location of the item, and are still using it. We will renew it for you and send you an email to confirm that it has been renewed.
If another patron requests an item that is checked out to a faculty member or employee, an email will be sent requesting that the item be returned after the initial loan period has passed.
Reserve, 3-day Reserve, and Board items have a loan period of 3 days, and at that time, a notice will be sent requesting the return of the item so that it is available for student use.
Other materials such as DVD's, Zspace glasses, Bones and Anatomical Models, Games, Headphones, White boards, Bookstands, and Clipboards or any other collections not otherwise listed above checkout to faculty for the same loan periods as given for students. Please see student loan policies for these collections.
Faculty members and employees do not incur fines. However, if an item is lost, the replacement cost of the item will be charged.
