Under the 1976 Copyright Act, Libraries may provide limited copying services for their patrons. The following guidelines must be followed for the Library to comply:
The Library provides one coin operated self-service photocopier for patron use.
Copies are five cents ($ .05) per side copied.
Student identification cards are necessary to check out library materials. ID cards, which may be picked up at student services, must be validated for the current semester before materials can be checked out.
The current loan period for books is approximately 20 days, audio visual items for 7 days. Reserve items, reference items, newspapers, magazines, and legal resources may not be checked out at any time.
Overdue Fines, Damaged and Lost/Missing Items Policy
Overdue fines begin accumulating on the 11th business day following the due date. Overdue fines will accrue at the rate of $.05 per item, per business day, until the item is turned in - or up to 1 year, at which time the item will be determined Lost/Missing (see Lost/Missing Items). Overdue fines will not exceed the cost of the book. A minimum of $ .55 per item overdue will be assessed. Any items not returned or fines not paid by the end of the semester will result in a hold* being placed on the student's record.
Audio visual fines will begin accumulating the day following the due date at $1.00 per day.
Any patron who returns damaged item(s) will be assessed the cost** of the item(s). When damages are paid the patron is welcome to take the item(s). Any damages not paid for by the end of the semester will result in a hold* being placed on the student's record.
An item will be determined Lost/Missing if not returned within 1 year of the Date Due.
The patron will be assessed the cost** of the item(s). Any patron who loses an item will be responsible for the cost** of the item(s).

No refunds will be given. Any Lost/Missing items not paid for by the end of the semester will result in a hold* being placed on the student's record.
*Holds placed on student's records will prevent the student from enrolling in future semesters, receiving grades, transcripts and diplomas. Holds will remain in effect until all items have been returned and/or monies due have been paid.
