Circulation Policy for Graduate Students

You must have your college ID with you to check out books and other materials.

 

1. SUNY Oswego students are allowed a 155 day loan period (or up to their expiration date, whichever is sooner) for items in the circulating collection. Items in other collections are loaned according to the policies for those collections.

2. Graduate Students may borrow a maximum of two-hundred (200) items at one time.

3. Graduate Students may renew circulating items four (4) times.

4. Students may request renewal of items IF THEY ARE NOT OVERDUE:

  • ~ via the Library Catalog. Click on "Personal Circulation Information". Sign in using your library ID number and password. Choose "loans" and follow instructions for renewal.
  • ~ by e-mail. Send requests to circdesk@oswego.edu, and include the
    item's barcode number, author and title. All e-mail renewals will
    be confirmed by e-mail.
  • ~ in person, at the Check-Out & Reserves Desk. It is not necessary to have
    the materials in hand unless the items are overdue or the maximum
    number of renewals has been reached.

5. Materials borrowed by Graduate Students are subject to recall after twenty-eight (28) days. Students are subject to recall fines, $2 per item per day, $15 maximum fine per item.

6. Graduate Students will be sent three (3) overdue notices for overdue materials. Overdue fines are $0.25 per item per day to a maximum of $10 per item. After the third notice, students will be billed for lost materials. Lost materials are billed for replacement costs plus a $25 processing fee per item.

7. Graduate Student borrowing privileges are suspended if more than one item is overdue OR if $10.00 or more is owed in fines. Privileges will be reinstated as soon as materials are returned AND fines are paid.
