Policies and Procedures

Wayne G. Basler Library Policy and Procedures


The Wayne G. Basler Library Policies & Procedures Manual has been written and revised by the Library’s professional and support staffs to provide clarification, consistency and documentation of the many areas of library service offered at Northeast State.  The policies reflect the mission, goals and objectives of Northeast State, the Library, the regulations of the Tennessee Board of Regents and the American Library Association.  The procedures are guidelines to carry out these tasks.

The Wayne G. Basler Library, through its resources, facility and staff, is dedicated to providing open access to information and to offering the services and tools with which to locate and interpret that information.  As patron needs and information technologies continue to evolve, so too will the means with which the Library endeavors to fulfill its role within the Northeast State community. This manual will be revised on an as-needed basis in order to reflect any necessary changes.
