Reserves Policies

Check Out Policy

A K-State ID is required to check out Reserves materials. Only two Reserves items may be checked out at any time. Patrons are responsible for knowing when their materials are due.

Return Policy

Materials must be returned to the location at which they were checked out.

Reserves items returned in book drops after the desk has closed will not be counted as returned until the desk re-opens. When the library is closed fines will continue to accumulate on Reserves material until the next time Reserves opens if they were due before closing.

Renewal Policy

There are no renewals on Reserves materials.

Fines

All patrons are fined for Reserves materials returned late. Materials returned to book drops, after Reserves has closed for the day, are not counted as returned until the next time Reserves opens. Fines will continue to accrue on these materials if they were due before closing.

Fines are as follows for Reserves materials:

  • $2 per hour overdue for 2-hour loans
  • $5 per day (or any portion of a day) for 1 , 3, or 7 day loans
