BORROWING FOR CONTINUING STUDIES STUDENTS //

 

Continuing Studies students not enrolled in a Certificate Program may not borrow from the University Libraries.

Continuing Studies Certificate Program students may borrow up to 10 items at a time.

Circulating books, scores, pictures  3 weeks
CDs, LPs, audiotapes  2 hours, in-library use only
Circulating videotapes, DVDs (2 max)  3 days
Slides, with permission from faculty  10 days
Pedagogical CDs (e.g., Aebersold series)  1 day

Continuing Studies Certificate Program students may renew items once. Library materials are university property and should be taken seriously.

Students may carry up to $5.00 in overdue fines or fees before borrowing privileges are suspended.

Renewals

You may renew materials yourself, through your library record online, or you may call the Greenfield (215-717-6280) or Music (215-717-6292) Library. Please note that this does not apply to course reserve materials.

Circulating books, scores and pictures may be renewed once by University of the Arts Continuing Studies Certificate Program students if no one else has requested them and if you have less than $5.00 in accumulated overdue fines on your record.

Holds and Recalls

Holds: If an item is checked out, anyone eligible to borrow may place a hold on it. This prevents the patron who has it checked out from renewing it but does not affect the due date. When an item with a hold on it is returned, you will receive a notice that the item is ready for you in the respective library. You may place a hold on checked-out items yourself through the online catalog or you may ask library staff at the circulation desk to do so for you. Holds cannot be placed on items that are not checked out.

Recalls: Anyone eligible to borrow may place a recall on a checked-out item. Recalls must be placed by library staff. Recalling an item alters the due date for the patron who currently has the item checked out. That patron will have 10 days from the date of the recall to continue using the item and return it by the new due date. If you receive a recall notice, please pay attention to it: the overdue fine for recalled items goes up to $1.00/day, up to a maximum accrual of $20.00 per item.

Summer and Winter Break Borrowing for Students

Students enrolled in summer session courses must present their student ID with a valid summer sticker. In addition, students who:

* return all checked-out materials
AND
* pay all outstanding fines
AND
* are pre-registered for the next semester

may borrow library materials during the summer or winter break.

Overdue Fines

University library fines and fees are financial obligations to the university. All materials must be returned or paid for and all fines must be paid in full in order for students to receive their diplomas or to receive transcripts. Any fines or fees remaining at the end of the academic year will be sent to the University's Finance Office and added to the student's fall tuition bill.

Replacement Fees

Material Type Replacement fee
Books, scores, audio and video recordings $100.00 minimum + $15.00 processing fee
Picture File materials $2.00 per picture
Slides $3.00 per slide

Please note that the replacement fees listed here are the minimum fee; fees can be more depending on the item. Library materials are university property. All materials must be returned or paid for and all fines must be paid in full in order for students to receive their diplomas or to receive transcripts.

Patrons who have lost library materials have the option of purchasing a new copy of the item for the library and paying the library only the $15.00 processing fee. This must be cleared with Carol Graney or Mark Germer before doing so.
