BORROWING PRIVILEGES

Circulation Desk

If you are affiliated with the university (student, staff, faculty, administrator), you are in the Library System and will be able to use the library services until you leave the university. Your Tech ID is your library card. Cards must be presented when checking out all library materials. Alumni and courtesy patrons must fill out a paper application and present a valid ID to create an account. They will then receive a library card. For any questions, call (479) 508-3321.

Fines and Charges

 

Faculty and Administrators

Faculty and administrators do not accumulate overdue fines. However, items not returned 30 days after the due date will be billed to Student Accounts. You will be charged for the replacement cost of the item and a $10.00 processing fee per item. Additionally, we reserve the right to contact department heads to help recuperate lost items loaned to faculty members, especially when those items have been requested by other students, faculty, or staff. 

If the items are returned in good condition, all fees associated with the item will be waived, and Student Accounts will be notified to clear the charges. However, no refunds will be issue if the item is found and returned after payment has already been made. 

All payments must be made at Student Accounts in Student Services.
