Where do I check out materials?
How do I check out materials?
|You must be a currently registered student or current employee of the college. Present a Columbus State Community College I.D. card or other valid form of picture I.D. such as a state driver's license, state I.D. card, passport, etc., at the circulation desk each time materials are borrowed.|
How do I Use Reserve Materials?
|Reserve materials may be checked out for two hours, but these items must be used within the library. The library has equipment to allow the use of audiovisual materials within the building. Reserve items not returned on time are subject to a $1.00 per hour late fine. Any reserve item not returned the same day they were checked out are subject to a $50.00 fine.|
How long may I keep checked out materials?
|These are the standard loan periods for materials borrowed from the Columbus State Library, OhioLINK and SearchOhio. Faculty and staff often enjoy extended loan periods for Columbus State items. Loan periods for items with special status may differ, such as course reserves.
What are the overdue fines?
|CSCC Library Items not returned on time are subject to a fine of 50 cents per day, per item, to a maximum amount of $15 per item, except for OhioLINK and SearchOhio items. OhioLINK items that are returned 30 days beyond the due date will carry a maximum fine of $50. SearchOhio items returned late will be fined a maximum amount of $25 per item. Faculty and staff are usually not charged late fees for library items, but they are liable for late fees for OhioLINK and SearchOhio items. All borrowers are responsible for lost or damaged items. Items long overdue are presumed lost and the borrower will be billed for the replacement cost and a processing fee.|
How many items can be checked out at one time?
|Students, faculty and staff may check out a total of 50 items at one time from the library or OhioLINK.|
Where are materials located?
What if the library does not have the books I need?
|Columbus State Community College is a member of OhioLINK, a state wide consortium of 90 private and public universities and colleges in the state of Ohio. CSCC students, faculty, and staff may request items from these institutions from OhioLINK, which will deliver those items to CSCC.
Columbus State Community College has partnered with SearchOhio to provide access to materials from nineteen public libraries in the state of Ohio. Items can be searched and requested at the SearchOhio catalog.
Although the library does not have any formal loan arrangements with the area's public libraries, they are also a good source for many types of materials.
Interlibrary Loan (ILL) is a special service that obtains materials not available through OhioLINK.
