KINDLE CIRCULATION PROCEDURE
Libraries have always had to decide who can borrow materials, what materials will be lent and for how long, and what will happen when someone does not return borrowed materials on time. These three components of the circulation operation, the identification of materials, patrons, and transactions, combined with the fine and fee structure, make up the areas requiring procedure decisions.
The Freeman/Lozier library is accountable for its inventory. This accountability is transferred to the borrower at the time material is checked out and remains with the borrower until the material is both returned and the check-in transaction is completed. While the materials are checked out to a borrower, the financial responsibility and accountability for the property lies with the borrower.
Currently registered Bellevue University Students, Faculty, and Staff.
