You must present a current CCSU (BlueChip card) ID at the Circulation Desk located on the Main Level to take out materials. You may have a maximum of 25 items checked out at one time. Most books may be checked out for four weeks and renewed once if not on hold for another patron. Materials from the Media Room, such as CDs and DVDs, may be checked out for two weeks and cannot be renewed. A fine of 10 cents per day, per item will be charged for overdue materials.

CCSU doctoral students may borrow books from the circulating collection on a semester basis. All music CDs, videos, DVDs, software and picture books circulate for 2 weeks.

Replacement Charges:
Lost or damaged material - current replacement cost, plus a $25.00 processing fee per item. Out of print books, $75.00 for hardcover, $50.00 for paperback. Registration and/or transcripts may be withheld until the account is settled.
