Circulation and Borrowing

Borrowing

Centre College faculty, staff and students may borrow materials from The Grace Doherty Library in accordance with established circulation rules. Presentation of a valid college ID card is required to check out materials.

Community users are welcome to use the materials in the library onsite without a fee. Checkout of materials is governed by the policies for non-Centre College users.

Availability of Material

The library's online catalog displays the location, call number, and status of an item. A status of AVAILABLE indicates an item which is not currently in circulation and can be checked out. Patrons should check the shelves to see if the item is there. If not, report this to the circulation desk. Items that are checked out will give a due date.

Other Statuses and Their Meanings

Not Available Item is unavailable. (Could indicate item is missing or too damaged for circulation.)
On Hold Item is currently on hold for a patron.
Checked Out Item is currently checked out (followed by due date).
