Purpose: To clarify which materials may circulate and under which conditions as reference loans
Scope: To clarify which materials may circulate and under which conditions as reference loans
Statement of Policy
Reference materials and current periodicals, by their very nature, are used frequently and must be accessible to the entire Marygrove College community.
Reference materials and current issues of periodicals are not allowed to circulate outside the library with one exception: if a librarian authorizes in writing a short-term outside-of-the-library use of such materials to a faculty or staff member. In that case, the authorizing librarian checks the item out on a clipboard kept at the reference desk; the authorizing librarian is responsible for the item’s return and crossing it out on the clipboard when it is returned. The material is not checked out through the library’s automated system.
The circulation period is negotiable.
