You may check out materials if you are:
Students, faculty and staff need their Norwich University ID card. Alumni, FOKL members and community guests will be given a library card. VCAL faculty members must bring a valid VCAL library card from their home library.
Sign in to your online account to renew online. You can also email firstname.lastname@example.org for assistance. There is a maximum limit of ten renewals for all checked out items. If you need to use an item beyond the renewal limit, you must bring it to the library to extend the loan period.
Please bring returns to a staff member at the Library Services Desk or drop off materials in the book drop located in the entry vestibule (open 24 hours). Materials can also be returned by mail.
Requesting a tracking number is highly recommended, as we cannot waive fines for lost materials without proof that those materials were delivered to campus.
If you are unable to return your materials by mail, please contact the Circulation Manager, Sarah LaForce (email@example.com), to make alternate arrangements.
For questions about returning or renewing Interlibrary Loan materials, contact the ILL office at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please don't give materials you've checked out to anyone else! You will be held responsible should the item become lost or damaged.
We don't charge overdue fees, but please return or renew materials on time! Our system sends out automated overdue courtesy reminders by email 7, 14, and 30 days past the due date.
After 30 days, the system will automatically declare the item lost and charge a replacement fee ($50 minimum). Your checkout privileges may be suspended if library materials aren't returned.
If materials have not been returned within 30 days past the due date OR before the end of the Spring Semester, a minimum $50 replacement fee for each item lost will be charged to your library account.
After replacement fee charges have been billed through the Bursar's office, they can only be removed when the item(s) are returned or an exact replacement has been purchased.
Refunds for returned materials that have already been billed through the Bursar's office can only applied within six months of the billing date.
A minimum $50 replacement fee will be charged for each lost or damaged item not returned after 30 days past the due date. At this point, you will receive an email from the Circulation Manager to inquire about returns or replacements. The Library Director reserves the right to temporarily or permanently suspend borrowing privileges if no attempt to return materials has been made.
Replacement fees for lost or damaged materials borrowed from other libraries may be charged at the discretion of the lending library.
Please direct all inquiries about billing and replacement procedures to the Circulation Manager (email@example.com).
