CHGS graduate students and Clark faculty: check-out procedures

  2. Fill out and place marker in the appropriate place on the shelves.
  3. An up-to-date list of all books checked out by students/faculty is located in the back of the blue binder on the library desk. This list will be updated weekly.
  4. If you can't locate a book on the shelves, please fill out a "Book Request Form" and the librarian will contact you regarding your request.

Undergraduate students

While the library is non-circulating to undergraduate students, exceptions can be made on a case by case basis. If you would like to request special permission to check out a book, please fill out a "Book Request Form" located in the library. Once the form is completed, the librarian will contact you regarding the request.

Return procedures

  • Do not re-shelve books or remove slips from shelves.
  • Please leave any returned books, videos, periodicals, etc on library desk.

Spring semester's book return

All Rose Library books, videos and periodicals will need to be physically returned to the library by the end of the spring semester. This is an important step in maintaining intellectual control of the collection. An email will be sent to all graduate students and faculty reminding them of this deadline as each semester ends.

If you need to keep the books over break for research purposes, you will still need to physically bring them down to the library so they can be checked in and then back out to you during the break. If this is not possible, you are responsible for making alternative arrangements with the librarian.

Lost book replacement policy

If no arrangements are made by the end of the semester, the librarian will send out an email reminder. If there is no response within two weeks, we will assume that the book(s) are lost. In addition to a $35.00 re-cataloging fee, you will be billed the replacement fee for each book ($50.00) or the actual cost of replacement of the book, whichever is greater.
