Checkout Renewals

The renewal periods are listed with the loan periods.

A book may not be renewed if it has been requested by an AGTS student or faculty member. Further, a book which has been renewed may be recalled during its renewal period if requested by an AGTS student or faculty member. Please see the Recalls of Books section for further information.

Recalls of Books

Any book that has been checked out may be recalled after two weeks of the initial loan period has passed (or 2 days in the case of one week loan periods) if requested by an AGTS student or faculty member. In addition, books can be recalled from any library patron at any point in their loan period if an AGTS professor has requested that they be placed on Course Reserve. Patrons must return recalled books to the library within 48 hours of notification or the book will be considered overdue and the patron will be subject to the AGTS fine policies.

Fines

Overdue AGTS Materials

For overdue circulating materials, fines will be levied beginning with the first business day following the due date of the materials. Fines are not charged for days when the library is closed.

If an AGTS alumnus has any overdue books or has accumulated fines equaling or exceeding $5, he/she will have his/her library account blocked in the circulation system. Once a library account is blocked, the account holder cannot check out any books from the AGTS library until the matter is resolved.

Fine Schedule
Regular circulating materials $.25 per day
Two-hour materials $1.00 per hour
DVDs, and video/audiocassettes $1.00 per day or any fraction thereof

Lost Items

AGTS Items

Library patrons should report lost items immediately. Fines will not be charged beyond the date when the item was reported lost. Regular circulating books not returned will be declared lost 21 days after the due date.  DVDs, video/audio cassettes, and reserve materials will be declared lost 14 days after the due date.

When an item charged to an AGTS student has been declared lost, a notice will be sent to the student and, unless the item is returned, the corresponding charges of the value of the item, the fines that have accrued, and a $10 processing fee will remain on the individual's account until the matter is resolved. No further library transactions will be possible while these charges remain in effect.
