INFORMATION, REGULATIONS AND POLICIES
FOR SPECIAL BORROWERS

WHO MAY OBTAIN A CABRILLO SPECIAL BORROWER LIBRARY CARD


GETTING YOUR LIBRARY CARD


CHECKING OUT MATERIALS

Special Borrowers may have a maximum of 10 items checked out at any given time. To borrow materials, bring them to the Circulation Desk, and present your Cabrillo College library card.


LOAN PERIODS

Check the date due slip inside each item for the due date. You are responsible for knowing when your library materials are due. RECALLS: If someone requests materials that you have had for more than 3 weeks, the library will send you a recall notice.

INTERLIBRARY LOAN SERVICE
Special Borrowers are not eligible for interlibrary loan service through Cabrillo, with one exception: Special Borrowers formerly or presently affiliated with Cabrillo (retired faculty & staff, Governing Board members, etc.) may submit one interlibrary loan request per month.


RENEWALS
You may renew books in person at the Circulation Desk, on the web, or by telephone. To renew on the web, go to the Library home page (http://www.cabrillo.edu/services/library) and click on "Renew Library Materials." When renewing by telephone, call the Circulation Desk (479-6473) when the library is open. Books may be renewed twice if no one else has placed a hold on that title.


RETURNING MATERIALS
Return books at the Circulation Desk when the library is open. Materials may be also returned through the outdoor book drop (the blue metal drop slot on the ocean-facing side of the library) when the library is closed.


OVERDUES AND BILLS
The library will, as a courtesy, send overdue notices for books from the Main/Folio Stacks if not returned by the due date. You are responsible for returning material by the due date whether or not you received an overdue notice for any reason. Material that is three weeks overdue will be billed for replacement. If the overdue material is returned in good condition, the item charge and processing fee will be eliminated from your record. The "billing fee" is our non-refundable overdue fine. Outstanding charges must be cleared before you may borrow additional library materials. Billing problems may be brought to the attention of Circulation staff when the library is open. We may not be able to resolve billing problems during evening hours. Replacement charges for unreturned or damaged books as well as overdue fines must be paid at the Library Circulation desk, any time the library is open.

DAMAGES
The library considers damages to include water damage, pencil marks, pen, highlighting, pages that are dog-eared, etc. Wet books are subject to mildew and must be withdrawn from the collection. You will be billed for replacement costs for books that must be withdrawn. If damages occur while you have materials checked out or in your possession, contact the Circulation Desk immediately at 479-6473.


REFUND POLICY
If you pay for lost library material and subsequently find it, you may receive a credit for the replacement charges within one year of the payment date. The material will be inspected to make sure it is in condition to return to the collection before a credit is initiated. Note: Replacement payments for lost instructor-owned reserve items cannot be credited by the library.
