Procedures for Borrowing Non-circulating Materials from the East Asian Library
When faculty and/or students request authorization to borrow non-circulating materials (bound periodicals, reference materials) the following guidelines and procedures should be followed:
(1). Current unbound periodicals are not circulated under any circumstance. Bound periodicals and reference books can be circulated by special permission from the bibliographers or the public services librarian. The bibliographers or the public services librarian determines the loan period for special permission material. Usually the borrowing period will not be more than one week. Other librarians can sign special permissions if none of the designated librarians is available.
(2). The librarian should fill out the peach colored wrapper, if he/she has determined that the item may be borrowed, and should seal the wrapper on the cover of the item. All materials checked out with special permission must be charged to the patron’s ID at the Lending Desk located at the ground floor of Hillman Library.
(3). The maximum number of special permission materials is three items at one time.
(4). All materials are subject to recall immediately when they are requested to be put on course reserve by a professor. When materials are recalled the loan period might be shortened.
(5). All materials should be returned to the ground floor Lending Desk of the Hillman Library by due date. The materials then should be sensitized and made ready for reshelving.
