Videos and DVDs may be checked out for seven days, unless placed on reserve by faculty members. The number of items that can be checked out at the same time varies by campus.
Loan periods for materials placed on reserve vary by item and campus. Loan periods are determined by the instructor who placed the item on reserve.
Laptop computers are available for LIBRARY USE ONLY for periods of two hours. Students are also required to fill out a Laptop Agreement Form.
Renewing items: Books, CDs, sound recordings and some videos and DVDs may be renewed up to five times. You may renew your checked-out materials online, or you may call or visit the circulation desk of any of the St. Louis Community College campus libraries.
Overdue fines: STLCC does not charge daily fines for overdue materials. However, a bill for the replacement cost of an unreturned item will be sent to the student five weeks after an item is due. If the material is not returned or paid, students lose their library privileges and will not be able to receive their grades, enroll in classes or have their transcripts sent to other institutions.
Lost or damaged: All borrowers are required to pay the replacement cost for each lost or damaged item. Replacement cost for books borrowed from other MOBIUS libraries is $120 for each book, which includes a non-refundable $20 processing fee.
Refunds for materials lost and paid: A full refund will be given for STLCC materials that are returned within one year. There are no refunds for lost and paid materials after one year.
