Circulation Policy

You will need an SGU ID with the current semester validation sticker and your library barcode in order to check out materials from the library. Item checkout periods are as follows:

Books ♦ 28 days
DVDs & VHS ♦ 7 days
CDs ♦ 21 days
CD ROM ♦ 2 days

Items that are checked out may be renewed up to 4 times if there is no one waiting for the item. Overdue items are fined $.10 a day for a maximum fine of $5.00.

If books are not returned there is a $5.00 non-refundable fine plus a minimum $25.00 lost book replacement fee. A $10.00 lost book processing charge is assessed for each book not returned. An after-hours book depository is available on the 2nd floor landing for your convenience.

Items borrowed from the Abbey Library check out for 28 days but must remain in the James J. Kelly Library during that time. 

Check out policies vary for ILL and reserve items, faculty members, OK Share-card holders, and library guest patrons.
