BORROWING PRIVILEGES

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. 

You can check what you have borrowed at Sign In.

Fines and Fees

Patrons will not accrue overdue fines. However, items not returned 30 days after the due date will be billed the replacement cost of the item and a lost item processing fee of $10 per item. If the item is brought back in good condition those fees will be waived. However, if the library item/s are not returned 60 days after the due date the replacement cost and processing fee will be billed to Student Accounts. At which point, all blocks on the patron’s library account will be removed, and all lost inventory will be deleted from the system. Once the bill has been sent to Student Accounts no refunds will be issued, even if the item is found.

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