Circulation of Documents and Maps

The circulation of documents and maps will take place at main Circulation Desk of the library.

Government publications and maps which have a barcode (and for which a Do Not Circulate Notice does not appear in staff mode) are permitted to circulate for the normal circulation period.

Fines will be the same as for books – 10 cents a day, with a maximum fine of $5.

If a patron wishes to check out a document which is not barcoded, he or she will be referred to the document and map department or to the reference librarian for assistance. The Documents staff or reference librarian will decide whether an item can circulate and will also record the pertinent information manually and give it to the Documents Librarian (Awilda Reyes).

One rule of thumb regarding circulation of documents is that census and periodical items do not circulate.
