 » Circulation

Those with a valid Marshall or Cabell-Huntington Hospital Id are authorized to borrow books and audiovisuals. Journals do not circulate, except in special cases. Books circulate for three weeks.  Items in the Reserve Collection circulate for 2 hours, 1 day, or 7 days.


Overdue items accrue fines at the rate of $.10 per day per item. Reserve overdue items are charged $1.00 per hour per item. Borrowers owing more than $20.00 in fines are blocked on the Library's computerized system and cannot borrow additional items until fines are paid.


One photocopier is available for copying books and journals under the Fair Use provision of the Copyright Law. Users operate the copiers with a Pharos card which is the same system as is used at the Orma Byrd Building and on main campus.  Five and ten dollar cards are on sale at the Circulation desk.  However, the device that transfers money into a card is available only on the main campus.   Users may ask the staff to use the Library's card and then pay cash for copies and printer output at the rate of $.10 per page.
