Most materials may be renewed for up to one year as long as the patron is in good standing (see below). Materials MUST be returned after one year. Library materials are university property and should be taken seriously.
Please note that interlibrary loan materials are the property of the loaning library and renewals are at their discression. Interlibrary loan materials accrue overdue fines at the rate of $1.00 per day.
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 for up to one year by University of the Arts students, faculty and staff if no one else has requested them. After one year, materials must be returned or borrowing privileges will be suspended. This policy applies to ALL patrons, including faculty.
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; someone else is waiting to use the item.
Faculty may designate a student assistant or administrative assistant to borrow library materials from the Greenfield or Music Library for the faculty member. Only one person may be designated as a proxy borrower. Faculty must send a written memo to this effect and, if using a student assistant, should state when the arrangement will end, e.g, "through the end of the fall semester 2010." The person you appoint as a proxy borrower must bring their own valid UArts ID each time to borrow under your name. Please address your memo to Sara MacDonald, Public Services Librarian, Greenfield Library, or to Mark Germer, Music Librarian, Music Library.
|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.
