When checking materials out at the Circulation Desk, the process goes more quickly if you have your Mustang ID card available to scan. If not, we can look up your account by your last name.
Primarily we have students working at the Circulation Desk and they may not know you. Don't be offended when they ask who you are :)
Faculty members check out materials for 4-months at a time. Materials can be renewed twice.
Overdue notices are sent to faculty if items are not renewed or returned. If materials are not returned, a library billing notice is sent. Charges are then sent to SMSU's Business Services and actual bills will be sent.
For most Library items the charge is $45 for replacement and $10 for processing, a total of $55 per item. The faculty member's record is blocked when a total charge of $220 is accrued (4 items considered lost or missing).
All charges are waived when the item is returned.
Contact Liz Fladhammer, Circulation Supervisor, 537-6158 or Pam Gladis, University Librarian, 537-6372 with questions or concerns.
