Photocopies or scanned articles
Faculty are encouraged to lend personal copies of required course textbooks to the library for reserve use. These items will have brief records added to the library catalog and will have minimal physical processing. Reserve books will be returned to faculty at the end of the semester unless otherwise noted. The library cannot take responsibility for damage occurring to these books in the normal course of use.
Faculty may specify any of the following loan periods for reserve material:
Library staff does their best to protect personally owned items that are submitted for course reserve, but patrons occasionally fail to return items. Accidental damage occurs and items are subjected to regular wear and tear.
In the case of damage or loss, GC Library is not responsible for replacing the item. A replacement cost is charged to the patron, but this money is not made available to the library to purchase a new item. To offset this, with instructor approval, library staff will extend the option to patrons of replacing the item themselves. The replacement must be the same title/edition and in comparable condition.
Students are charged fines for reserves items returned late at a rate of $1.00 per hour and $5.00 per day. Additional fees and book replacement costs may also apply.
