Borrowing Privileges and Restrictions
Borrowing privileges are granted to patrons by type of affiliation. A patron with more than one type of affiliation is granted the broadest privileges applicable. Each borrower is responsible for all library materials borrowed, and for any charges incurred by the use of the library card.
Items requested in the catalog for pickup at remote sites (Ellis Office, Research Park Office, St. Elizabeth Dermatology, St. Elizabeth Psychiatry, St. Elizabeth Geriatrics) are checked out to the requestor and sent via courier to the faculty or staff office address listed in the campus phone directory. The requestor assumes responsibility for items lost in transit.
Appeals to overturn fines or to establish a payment plan are to be made to the Head of Information Delivery Services; in the absence of the department head, or if resolution is not satisfactory, appeals may be made to the Associate University Librarian for Public Services. Appeals may also be made to the University Librarian, if resolution is not satisfactory.
