Circulation Desk



Students must be currently enrolled and have a photo ID.  No more than 10 items can be checked out at any given time.


Materials may be renewed one time only (for the same loan period) if another patron has not placed the item on hold.  Materials may be renewed by phone by calling 619-644-7356 during regular business hours.


If an item is checked out you can put a hold on it by going to the Circulation Desk to get a Holds Form and fill it out.  If you are off campus you can call 619-644-7356 to place a hold.

Overdue Items

Regular (not Reserve) circulating materials accrue fines at $.25 per day per item.  Items not returned by the close of business on the date due will be considered overdue and fines will accrue until material is checked in on the next business day.

Patrons will be blocked from further checkout if they have overdue materials or if they have unpaid bills in excess of  $3.00.  Students are blocked from administrative functions (registration, drop/add, transcripts, and grades by phone) if they have any overdue materials or fines in any amount.

Interlibrary loan charges for overdue books are $3.00 per day.
