There are no library fines, though users will be charged for lost books. All library books are due on Wednesday of Week 11, and students who have overdue books after that point may be subject to a hold on their accounts and/or a charge being placed for the book.

The library holds a collection of Booklist's 100 Best Books of the Twentieth Century. We also have a Paperback Swap program, which allows patrons to exchange their own paperbacks with each other. The books are left on a rack in the west wing of the library. Book donations are accepted.

There are two classrooms in the library. When they are not being used for classes, they are available for student use.

Students may reserve classrooms if the classroom is not being used for another function. If the room becomes essential for an organizational function, students may be asked to move to another room.

DVDs and videos are on the same shelves as the books, organized using the Dewey Decimal System. Please ask a librarian for help locating an item.

The library keeps lost and found items at the Reference Desk, in addition to the official Lost and Found at the Student Activities Office. Unclaimed items are delivered to the Student Activities Office on a weekly basis.

Ringers should be muted in the library. When calls are taken, patrons should go to the library foyer or other discreet location to avoid disturbing other patrons. Cell phone use is not permitted in the Quiet Study Area.

The university’s office phones are not for student use. Personal calls for students from family or friends will not be accepted.

Children are welcome in the library while accompanied by a responsible adult, as long as they do not disturb other patrons. If children become disruptive, their guardians may be asked to move them to another part of the building or to remove them from the building.

Only capped, bottled water is permitted in the library.

A student’s Sullivan University ID card can be used as a library card. The ID card enables students to check out materials. The borrower is responsible for materials checked out on his/her ID card. If a student loses his or her ID/library card, please report it immediately to the library. If a student did not receive a student ID card during registration, he or she can obtain one in the administration office.

The library has an automated circulation system which uses cutting-edge technology to allow students, staff, and faculty to check out and reserve library materials such as books and audiovisuals using barcodes on all library items.

There is a checkout limit of ten items.

Circulating library books, videos, and DVDs may be checked out for two weeks. Materials may be renewed up to three times unless they have already been reserved by another user.

Patrons can request renewals for their items by speaking to a staff member at the reference desk.

Items can be renewed by phone until Week 9, when you will need to bring the book to the library for a renewal.

Periodicals cannot be checked out. Photocopiers are available.

Reference books are dictionaries, almanacs, encyclopedias, and similar resources used for finding current factual information. They are stored in a specified area of the library and marked with a letter “R” on the spine. They cannot be checked out.

Library materials can be reserved by speaking to a librarian or by using the Place Hold feature in the catalog. To use the Hold Request feature, locate the item that you would like to request in the catalog. Click the Hold Request button in the menu. Users must request a PIN number from library staff members either in-person (with ID proof of identity) or via email prior to reserving an item.
