Campus Weekly is published each Wednesday when classes are in session. In the summer, it is published biweekly.

Borrowers have more time for some items

  1. Over the summer the entertainment DVD collection was reprocessed so that DVDs can be checked out on the Libraries’ two Self Check Express machines. Most items from the Stacks, Current Literature, Audiobooks and Paperbacks collections may also be self-checked. Self checks are located in the Jackson Library at the Circulation Desk and in the hallway between the desk and the Tower elevators. UNCG ID is required to self-check. After checkout, DVD cases can be unlocked after exiting the Library via the Library-EUC Connector or the College Avenue doors.
  2. The following changes were made to allow borrowers more time with materials and to renew or return materials before money is owed:
    • 21-day loans were increased to 30 days for materials loaned from the Stacks, Current Literature, Audiobook and Paperback collections.
    • No overdue fines are charged for items from these collections borrowed May 12 or afterward. Most of these materials can be renewed four times online.
    • Overdue fines continue to be charged on materials from the Course Reserves, DVD, Tech Lending and AV Equipment collections.
  3. Some additional changes:
    • The lost item processing fee increased from $10 to $20 per item. This fee compensates University Libraries for expenses incurred in the billing and reordering processes for lost items.
    • If items are returned or renewed within specified amounts of time after their due dates (eight days for Course Reserves, DVDs, Tech Lending and AV Equipment; 40 days for Stacks, Current Literature, Audiobook and Paperback books), the processing fee is not charged.
