Circulation Policies

Basic Rules

General Principles

  • Properly check out and return all materials taken from the library on or before the due date.
  • Do not loan your ID card or borrow someone else’s ID card.  It is considered a serious offense to borrow for or loan materials to another patron when that patron has lost his/her own borrowing privileges.

Unauthorized Removals

  • Unauthorized removal of materials, be it a single page or several items will be treated as a serious offense.  The theft or vandalism of library property or materials may be reported to the office of Student Development for further action.
  • Under Missouri Law, it is a crime to fail to return library materials or to remove materials without properly signing for them.  Criminal charges may be filed when the values of the material or other circumstances warrant.
