Circulation Policy

Eastern International College Libraries maintain a circulating collection of materials for students, alumni, faculty and staff affiliated with the college. Materials not designated as Reference - and thus, non-circulating - are loaned for periods dependent on patron designation.

Renewals

Most loan periods are 14 days. However, students, alumni, faculty and staff are able to renew currently loaned materials provided there is not a current waitlist on the material. In order to renew, they can email, telephone or make an in-person visit to the libraries. Renewal periods are also in 14 day increments.

Overdue Materials

Any materials held over their period of loan - without renewals - are considered overdue. Overdue materials may incur a fine of up to $0.25 per day up to the value of the materials borrowed.

All patrons in possession of excessively overdue materials will be referred to the College Registrar.
