Circulation Policies for the Circulation Desk Collection


Items in this collection are located at the Circulation Desk on the third (main) floor of the A. C. Clark Library. People wishing to use an item from this collection should request the item at the Circulation Desk, using the item’s call number (e.g. Circulation Desk – HF1118 .C73).

Loan Periods

Though most items in this collection circulate to BSU students, faculty, and staff, there are some items (identified as “non-circulating”) which may only be used in the library and check out for 3 hours at a time.

BSU Undergraduate Students: 28 days
BSU Graduate Students and Assistants: end of semester
BSU Faculty and Staff: end of semester
Non-University Borrowers: 3-hours, in library use only

Renewals Possible: Yes, for circulating items

Overdue charges and borrowing privileges

  • Borrowing privileges are suspended until the item is either returned or replacement charges are paid.
  • Replacement cost for each item which becomes 29 days overdue.
  • If a billed item is returned, the borrower will be credited the amount billed.
  • Any person who removes a “non-circulating” item from the library may be assessed a per day penalty for each item removed. The A. C. Clark Library reserves the right to levy a disciplinary charge above and beyond any normal overdue charges on any borrower whom the library deems has flagrantly violated the library’s circulation policies.
