Due Dates

Patrons are responsible for returning or renewing items on or before their due date.  To view the item(s) you have checked out and their due dates, access your library account via My Library Record at the top right of this page.

Renew Items

To renew your items, log into your library account via My Library Record in the top right of this page.  For Thomason Library materials, patrons are allowed two renewals.  For PASCAL books, patrons are allowed one 3-week renewal.

Overdue/Lost Items

Courtesy notices for overdue materials will be sent via e-mail or postal mail as recorded in the college's BannerWeb or, for community borrowers, as provided by the patron.  It is the patron's responsibility to report any address changes to the library's circulation department.  Non-receipt of overdue notice does not absolve the borrower of any fines or charges that may be incurred.

Items not returned or renewed after several overdue notices will be presumed lost, and the borrower will be billed for their replacement.  Borrowers who return billed items must pay the greater amount of the accrued fine or the billing fee.

Request Items

To place a hold or to recall an item that is checked out, visit the circulation desk or call the circulation department at (864) 833-8299.
