Library Policies: Home

Academic Integrity Policy and Student Code of Conduct

Deliberate withholding and/or non-return of an item may be considered a form of academic dishonesty or interfering with other students' learning and may be handled according the Academic Policy Manual.

Library Silent Study Areas

Each library has designated silent or quiet study areas. Respect for others in the silent/quiet areas is expected.

Overdue Notices

Borrowers are responsible for ensuring their contact information is current and that all items are returned on time. Overdue notices are sent by mail as well as by email as a courtesy. If an item is not returned, an overdue fee will be charged each day until the replacement cost of the item has been reached.

If fines/bills owing exceed $15, borrowing privileges will be suspended and transcripts will be withheld until the fine/bills are below $15.00.

Suspension of Borrowing Privileges

Suspension of borrowing privileges will apply if fines/bills owing accrue to over $15. Repeated violation of borrowing rules may lead to suspension of privileges. Transcripts may be withheld if items are not returned.

Damaged Material & Replacement Costs

If an item is not returned, or is returned damaged, the borrower may be required to pay the replacement cost of the item.


Most items may be renewed twice in person, or online via the library catalogue, or by calling your campus library. Reserve items are not renewable. Toys are renewable only in-person, both the toy sheet and the toy must be present.

Some other restrictions may apply so please contact your campus library if you have difficulties renewing a specific item.

Interlibrary Loans (ILL)

Current SLC students, staff and faculty may use our Interlibrary Loan service to borrow items from other college libraries. Loan periods must be respected, and any charges incurred are the responsibility of the borrower. Contact your campus Library for more details.

Online Journal Articles & eBooks

Off campus access to library databases are available to current SLC students, faculty and staff. Community members may access the online databases and journals from on campus only.


The Library may accept donations of current books that contribute to the development of our collection. Please contact a campus Library for donation guidelines before bringing your donations to the Library.
