Library Policies

LIBRARY POLICIES

Library Cards
An IVC identification card is used as a library card. Students may get one at no charge in the College Center. Non-students who wish to use the Library are charged a nominal fee for the card. For further information click here.
Circulation Period
Library materials can be checked out for four weeks and renewals are allowed, as long as no one else has requested the material. Pamphlet materials and DVDs can be checked out for one week. Library fines are assessed for overdue material. The borrower is responsible for any damage or loss of materials checked out in their name.
Placing a Hold
You may place a hold on a book that is checked out. When the book is returned, you will be notified. The book will be kept at the Circulation Desk under your name. If you do not pick it up in a reasonable amount of time, the book will be placed back on the shelf.
Book Returns
For your convenience there are book returns located around the campus. One is at the front entrance of campus near the walkway to the Administration Building, another is outside the entrance to the Library, and a third is just west of the 2700 building. In addition, there is a book return inside the building at the Circulation Desk as you enter the building. The three outside returns are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week for return of material. They are emptied daily.
Overdue Books & Fines
A fine of ten cents per day per book or $1.00 per pamphlet or DVD, up to the cost of the material, will be charged for every day that it is late. Any money you owe could keep you from being allowed to register for subsequent semesters or receive transcripts until the obligation is cleared with the Library. For further information click here.
Lost & Damaged Materials
Lost and Damaged Materials: If a book or other material is lost or damaged, you will be charged the price of the material plus a $10 fee. A refund, less the $10, will be given if you return the material within six months of payment. For further information click here.
If you have further questions about policies not mentioned here, please call the circulation desk @ 355-6409.
