Answer

Beginning January 2015, the KSU Libraries will have a change in the fines and fees for all faculty and staff. This is to ensure that the libraries can maintain and improve the availability and quality of services and resources.

Check-out periods for faculty/staff on KSU books will be until the end of the current academic year.  These books will be due every year on May 5. Similar to technology on campus, the KSU Libraries need to inventory all library property once a year, including books checked out to faculty and staff. Please see the chart for library fees and fines.  We will accept a photo image of the barcode of the book for renewals. Faculty may renew books 3 times.  Requested and recalled items cannot be renewed. 

To renew your items or speak with circulation staff about any questions you have regarding items on your account, please contact the Sturgis Library 470-578-6202 or the Johnson Library  470-578-7276.
