These patrons do not have interlibrary loan privileges or off-campus electronic resource access
Employees are not normally limited in their borrowing, unless items are in high demand or it is deemed to be excessive and without relation to his/her needs as an employee of the College. The Library Director, Access Services Librarian, or Public Services Supervisors will review such situations.
For Associate, Reciprocal, and Community Borrowers, intercampus transfer may be requested in-person but placing a hold on checked out material is not available.
Holds may be placed online through the Library catalogue or in person at the Check Out Desk. Patrons are notified when their holds are available for pick up through their college email (Associate, Reciprocal and Community Borrowers through their personal email). Items are kept for pick-up on a self-serve shelf area near the Check Out Desk, to a maximum of five working days.
If five or more requests are placed for an item, the item's loan period can be changed to two hours and it is relocated to the reserve area, normally for the remainder of the current semester.
The Library will notify patrons via their college email account about:
