Borrowing Policy: Staff

Borrowing Policy: Staff


The Library grants the following borrowing privileges to serve the research and information needs of staff. Staff may borrow books and non-print materials from the in-house collection. Interlibrary loan items can be requested for work-related materials and are limited in number.  Reasonable limits are set to ensure availability of resources for all members of the college community. There is a limit of 30 items per staff member, which includes all loans and active requests. Within this 30 item limit, up to 5 ILLs are allowed. Borrowers are responsible for all items checked out on their account. Failure to abide by these policies may result in loss of borrowing privileges and replacement and processing fees if applicable.

Staff members who are also students at institutions other than Goddard College should make their requests for purchase or ILL through the school in which they are enrolled.

Your Responsibilities

In using the library, it is your responsibility to understand and comply with all Goddard College  Library  policies as explained in this document. As a user, you are also responsible for all materials charged to your account. Borrowing materials for someone else with your card, loaning library materials charged to your account to another, or giving library materials to someone else to return for you,  does not alleviate your responsibility for such materials.

The library reserves the right to make policy changes at any time.
