Circulation: ID and Borrowers Cards

This guide describes circulation policies regarding: library cards, checking out items, loan periods, returning items, overdue notices and replacement costs, intercampus loans, interlibrary loans, and the reserve system.

About Borrowers Cards For:

Pellissippi State students, faculty, and staff must present the Pellissippi State ID card at the library's circulation desk (or ERC service desk at other locations/Open Lab at Strawberry Plains) in order to check out library items and use reserve materials. These photo ID cards are issued by designated offices of Pellissippi State Student Life and Recreation. Visit their web page or ID FAQ for further information.

Currently enrolled Pellissippi State students and currently employed Pellissippi State faculty and staff members are eligible to apply for a TBR/UT (TALC) Borrowers Card. This card permits check-out of circulating materials at participating TBR/UT libraries in accordance with the lending library’s local policies. Please note that the TBR/UT (TALC) card is a library borrower's card and it does NOT imply or confer any other privileges or access to computer labs or services at any other campus facilities that you might visit at a participating school. Come to the Library's circulation desk at the Hardin Valley Campus or to the ERC service desk at other Pellissippi locations for a TALC card.

  • A valid TBR/UT (TALC) Borrower's Card and a photo ID must be presented at the lending library in order to check out materials. You may also be asked to present your valid Pellissippi State ID card.
  • Borrowers are subject to the rules and policies of the lending library and are responsible for any financial obligation incurred at the lending library as well as for any collection fees accrued.
  • The card is valid for the current semester only. Plan to stop by Pellissippi's library for a new card each semester.
  • Students not enrolled in summer classes at Pellissippi State are not eligible for the TALC borrower's card during the summer.
  • The lending library reserves the right to cancel the privileges of borrowers who fail to follow the policies of the library.
