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.
Each library has designated silent or quiet study areas. Respect for others in the silent/quiet areas is expected.
Borrowers are responsible for ensuring their contact information is current and that all items are returned on time. All material loaned out/borrowed are clearly stamped with a due date. 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 you are unsure of the due date for any material you have borrowed please check the DUE DATE sticker for the date stamp.
If fines/bills owing exceed $15, library borrowing privileges will be suspended.
Suspension of library borrowing privileges will apply if fines/bills owing accrue to over $15. Repeated violation of borrowing rules or library policy may lead to suspension of privileges as well. Fines/bills owing of $30 or more may lead to a hold on your college account, preventing registration or transcript requests.
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.
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.
Off campus access to library databases are available to current SLC students, faculty and staff. Alumni and 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.
