Learning Commons Circulation Policies

  • Loans Periods for Learning Commons Materials

    Materials from the SHS Learning Commons are circulated to students for a loan period of 21 days.  Students may check out up to 3 print books at a time, along with 3 digital books on MackinVIA. 

    After 21 days, print books that have not been returned or renewed are considered overdue.  Books may be renewed online (within 3 days of due date) or in the Learning Commons as long as the material is not on hold for another student.  Students should renew or return overdue materials before checking out new books.

    Digital materials (eBooks and Audiobooks) will automatically be returned to MackinVIA or Libby at the end of the loan period.  Students may renew these materials within 3 days of the due date if there are no existing holds by students or staff.

    Overdue and Lost Books

    No fine will be assessed for overdue materials, but students are encouraged to return materials as soon as they are done using them.

    Replacement fees are assessed for books that are not returned by the time a student graduates.  Please reach out to Learning Commons staff for any concerns about payment, so we may waive the fee and re-order the book for other students to enjoy.

    Access to Scott County Library Materials

    Students may also check out print and digital materials at the Scott County Library with their Virtual Student Library Card.
