Ten (10) books may be checked out concurrently.
Books circulate for three weeks and may be renewed once. If a HOLD has been placed on any item, it cannot be renewed and must be returned to the Library.
Books can be renewed by calling the Library Circulation Desk at 686-5980
Extended Circulation Policy
Extended check-out is available to UAMS Graduate School students. The time frame for extended checkout will be negotiated at the time of checkout but will usually be for one semester at a time because library print resources are limited.
If any items are requested for use by other patrons, the graduate student will be contacted and asked to return the book(s) to the Library within 4 business days. If the items are not returned within that time, a $1.00 fee per day for each book requested will be charged. The patron requesting the item will have three weeks use, with no renewals. The item will then be checked back out to the graduate student if still required for extended checkout.
Contact Libby Ingram for more information at 686-6741 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
You may place a “HOLD” on any item that is currently checked out or not on the shelves and you will be contacted by e-mail or phone when the item is available for you. Holds may be placed through ILLIAD, the Interlibrary Loan/Document system.
Primary notification of the due date for items checked out is the date stamp in the book entered at the time of checkout.
Courtesy notices are sent through e-mail three (3) days prior to the due date of checked-out books. Renewals may be requested by phoning the Circulation Desk (686-5980) during operating hours.
A second courtesy email notice is sent the day the book is due and the first overdue email notice is sent the day after a book is due. Renewals may be requested at that time by phoning the Library (686-5980) during operating hours.
Check-out privileges are blocked until items are returned or replacement costs are paid.
Please note: If a courtesy email is not received, or if an email address is not available, the date due stamped in the book serves as the primary notice of the due date and fines are not waived.
****Replacement costs for unreturned or lost books must be paid in order to complete campus clearance for graduation or for leaving employment at UAMS.
If items are not returned by the due date, two subsequent notices are sent. The final notice is a bill for the replacement costs of the items. Borrowing privileges are suspended and will not be reinstated until the materials are returned and fines are paid or replacement costs and fines are paid if the materials are lost.
When overdue items are returned, replacement costs are waived.
If items are lost, the charges for each item will include replacement cost of the item.
There are three locations where you may return Library materials.
Please return the following items inside the Library, not in the bookdrops:
