Feedback Friday: What can we do to improve our loan policies?

calendarBooks from our main collection circulate for 30 days, 60 days, or for a semester, depending on the patron.  Some can be renewed, fines are sometimes assessed, and recalls or holds can be placed, depending on the material type. What would you suggest we do to improve our policies? Is there something you would have us change?

    The law school legal periodicals — namely the Law Review, Journal of Sports and Entertainment, and Environmental Law Journal — often need to take books out for a process we call “sourcechecking.” Books are kept in the office but shared between multiple users.

    As it currently stands, one student must check out and take personal responsibility for the book (generally, the managing editor). This presents an issue when books are kept past the due date or are damaged.

    Why can’t we create a check-out procedure specific to the journals, with an SOP for how the books should be handled and returned?
