Walter M. Bortz III Library ....................................................................... Shaunna E. Hunter, Director of the Library Library Policies Books: Students may check out books for four weeks. Other than McNaughton popular reading titles, they may be renewed for two additional fourweek periods, provided that another patron has not requested the book. Students engaged in long-term research projects may arrange longer loan periods with a staff member. Renewing items can be done by either bringing the book to the Circulation Desk or by providing the barcode number over the phone (434) 223-7227. There is no limit on the number of books that students can check out. However, users are strongly encouraged to return books when they are finished so that others may have access to them. Media Items: Feature films, documentaries and CDs circulate for three days and may be renewed twice in person or by telephone at (434) 223-6293. Because of demand for our media collections, we ask that no more than five items be checked out at a given time. The Technology Commons also has an array of cameras, audio recorders, tripods, clickers, laptops and various peripherals that circulate, some for in-library use only. Users are strongly encouraged to return items that they are not using as we have a limited amount of equipment. Overdue Items: There are no fines for overdue books or media items. However, students with

overdue items are not permitted to check out additional items until the overdue items are either returned or renewed in person or by phone as described above. Students with overdue items will be allowed to check out materials on course reserve. All users will be expected to pay replacement costs on all damaged, destroyed, or lost materials. Students who leave campus at the end of an academic year without returning library items will be billed for replacement costs. These charges may also be billed to student accounts. Course Reserves: Reserve items are loaned according to an instructor’s specifications (most are in-library use only, while some are overnight reserves). Reserve books and videos are available at the Circulation Desk on the second floor of the library. Research and Technology Help: You can get assistance with any type of research question, help finding books and Articles, and more on the main floor during regular business hours, 8am–5pm and Monday–Thursday evenings from 6–10pm. Also, you can get help with Microsoft Office products, Canvas, and other technology issues in the Fuqua Technology Commons during regular business hours. Come on in—we are always happy to help you.

No smoking or other use of tobacco products of any kind is allowed. Generally a quiet atmosphere is desirable; please respect others who are working diligently.
