Love Library reduces fines, changed lending code
By MareSIa Synoec
.Low Memorial library has reduced
overdue book fines and created a new
lending code that should eliminate
discrepancies users have encountered in the
past, say library officials.
The new lending code, in effect for the
first time this semester after six months of
planning, applies to all libraries in the uni
versity's library system and are either in
effect now or will be in the next few
A few exceptions to loan periods, how
ever, are found in the libraries of architec
ture, chemistry and law. The new code
keeps the same borrowing privileges for all
The loan period for bound periodicals
has been reduced from one week to three
days. However, Charles Chamberlin , "circu
lation services librarian, said that
bound periodicals now. are renewable.
Assistant Dean of libraries Dean Waddel
said periodical users either treated a bound
periodical as a book and wishes to keep it
longer or used them for one or two articles
at a time, which caught the library in the
The new code also includes a change in
circulation procedure. Previously, one
form was used when checking out a book.
One part remains with the book and the
other stays in the library. Although the
new circulation forms have not arrived,
Chamberlin says the manufacturer should
be delivering them within the next few
With the new dual-copy circulation
forms, the library user no longer will be
required to return material to the library
for renewal. The user can send or bring in
the renewal form to be stamped with a new
due date, Waddel said.
He said the new system is more flexible, .
provides extra convenience to the user and
speeds the flow of material to the shelves
once it is returned.
'The interlibrary use is unified under the
new code. Waddel said library users now
- aren't faced with three or four different
lending codes when they are searching for
specialized materials. Central reserve and
circulation have been combined, he said.
Fines on overdue books have been
reduced from $1 to 60 cents, Chamberlin
said. The grace period to return books has
been extended from one to five days
and Chamberlin said he "hopes materials
will be returned so others can use them."
"Perhaps no fines would be necessary if
material was returned on time or renewed
prior to the due date," Waddel said.
Chamberlin added that although fines are
justified as an incentive to return books
promptly, the $1 tine was criticized
because students said it was too high.
Waddel said he would like to redesign
the circulation desk to make it more servic
able, by allowing direct entry to the stacks
from the first level and combining check
out and security checks.
Chamberlin said use of the library's
main branch is increasing, but he does not
attribute the increase to higher enrollment.
He said the new building may be attracting
more people, and as the system continues
to change and improve the number of users
may continue to increase.
. Chamberlin said the new code has not
been in effect long enough to determine
any serious problems.
