Wayne G. Basler Library Policy and Procedures

Circulation - Introduction

In its support of Northeast State’s educational goals, the purpose of the Circulation Staff is to provide maximum access to the library’s collection for students, faculty, staff, and community members.  Materials are maintained in an orderly fashion and circulation procedures are organized for smooth transactions between users and staff.

The circulation staff:

  1. Maintains the circulating collection, making sure materials are properly checked in and returned to the shelves.
  2. Monitors the shelves to see that materials are in order.
  3. Processes materials for check-out and maintains records and statistics on all circulating materials.
  4. Assists patrons in directional, mechanical, and short-reference information needs.
  5. Registers and maintains records and statistics on all borrowers.
  6. Maintains statistics on library usage.
  7. Processes information on delinquent borrowers and notifies them as required.
