***Only Keuka College students are permitted to borrow Reserve materials.
Instructors may place course materials on reserve for their students to use. Because it is critical that these items be available to all members of the class for the effective completion of assignments, students should be considerate of classmates by returning Reserve material on time. Students who fail to return Reserve materials on time will have their library account blocked so they cannot check out or renew any books until the Reserve item has been returned.
Keuka students and staff may place holds on items that are checked out. To place a hold on an item that is currently in circulation, please come to or call the circulation desk at (315) 279-5632. Please be sure to indicate if there is a date after which you no longer need the requested item. A user will be notified via Keuka email when the item has been returned. A user can pick up material at the circulation desk.
Any library item that has been in circulation for 2 weeks may be recalled for loan to another patron. If another library user requests an item that is in circulation, a recall notice will be sent to the borrower holding the item. Items recalled for a faculty member or for placement on Reserve must be returned immediately. In all other cases, the borrower has 3 days following issuance of the recall notice to return the item. The original borrower’s due date may be changed to allow 14 days use from the original check-out date plus 3 days after the recall notice’s issuance. Failure to return an item that has been recalled will result in a user’s account being blocked so he/she cannot check out or renew any books until the recalled item is returned.
Overdue notices are issued as a courtesy to all library users. It remains the responsibility of the borrower to return materials on time. Failure to receive overdue notices is not an excuse for failure to return overdue materials.
Notices will be sent to borrowers reminding them that they have an overdue item(s) that must be returned. All notices will, whenever possible, be sent to the borrower’s Keuka email address. Notices will go out as follows:
Replacement Costs: The amount billed for replacement will include the price of the item plus a $25 processing fee to cover the expenses incurred by the library in trying to recover and replace seriously overdue material. If the replacement cost cannot be established, the borrower will be charged $35/item plus the $25/item processing fee.
Replacement costs will be forgiven upon return of the material. However, the borrower will still be responsible for the $25 per item processing fee once charges are sent to the Business Office. Replacement costs will be refunded if the borrower returns the material within one year.
