We are looking closely at our department policies this summer and it was
suggested by our Reserves department that shorter check-out period might
decrease the number of items our faculty feel compelled to place on
reserve. We currently allow 3-day checkout for our materials
(VHS/Laserdiscs/DVDs) but this length was determined by limitations of
our old OPAC. We now have a more flexible system and could set almost
any length we want.
I'm curious to see what other libraries/media centers are using as a
check-out period for their materials and the rationale behind the
policies. Respond to me and I'll summarize for the list if there is
Thanks in advance!
