General Library Circulation Guidelines

• All patrons must present either a current MICA ID, a current BALC member institution ID or Decker Library alumni card in order to borrow materials.

• Books are borrowed for a period of three weeks for students and staff, one semester for faculty.

• DVDs are borrowed for a period of two days for students, two weeks for faculty and staff.

• If an item that you need is on loan to another patron, you may ask Circulation staff to place it on hold, and notify you when it is returned.

• Any item may be renewed if no other patron has placed a hold on it - see student guidelines for more information.

• Overdue charges are $0.25 a day per book, $1.00 a day per DVD.

• A book is considered lost if not returned within two months of the due date. A DVD is considered lost if not returned within two weeks of the due date. The borrower is then charged the item's full replacement cost along with a $25 processing fee per item.

• Items can be returned after hours through the drop located at the main entrance of the Library on the first floor of the Bunting Center.

• Users can view a list of their checked-out items -- and students may renew items twice -- using the Library Catalog by clicking on "My Account" and logging in with their MICA credentials.

• You can also view your account using your mobile device! The free BookMyne app allows you to view your checked-out items, holds and fines, and allows students to renew items. Available in the App Store for Apple iOS and Google Play for Android.
