Check it out: Bound journals on the move

By Katy Kelly

Ahead of the first phase of Roesch Refresh — the library’s reimagining and renovation of the first and second floors — the print journal collection on the second floor is scheduled for relocation Dec. 18‒Jan. 21 and will be unavailable during this time.

Starting Jan. 22, faculty, staff and students may request a journal volume by clicking the blue “request” button on the journal’s catalog record. Faculty will be able to request the items through the Roesch2U delivery service.

And, starting in early 2018, the Libraries will be introducing new journal checkout privileges. Print journals have always circulated to faculty and staff — but students could only use them inside the library. Now, students may check them out, too.

After a request is made in the library catalog, library staff will retrieve a volume from storage; students, faculty and staff can pick it up at the access services desk for use in the library or to check out for three days.

Circulation policy for bound journals

-Loan period for bound journals is three days.
-Journal loans are non-renewable.
-Late fees for students are 15 cents per day.
-Replacement costs for a lost/unreturned journal is $100; an unreturned journal will be marked as lost after it is 10 days late.
-Bound journals are requestable through the catalog and will be kept on the hold shelf for three days.
