The check-out period for faculty/staff on KSU books is until the end of a current academic year.  These books are 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.

Faculty may renew books 3 times; however, requested and recalled items cannot be renewed.  We accept a photo image of the barcode of the book for renewals.

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.
