Circulation Services is the first point of contact for many Pellissippi library users. The Circulation Desk is on the right near the entrance of the Educational Resources Center (ERC) at the Hardin Valley Campus. Circulation services are also available at the library service desk at other Pellissippi campuses.
Services at the Circulation Desk:
Items may be returned to any campus library during their open hours:
Items can be returned 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, at the Hardin Valley Library book depository located just outside the entrance to the ERC building.
The library does not charge daily fines for the late return of materials. However, keeping materials past the due date will result in 3 overdue notices, followed by a bill for the replacement cost of the item plus a $15.00 per item processing fee, if items are not returned within one month of the due date. Reserve items will be billed one week after the due date and the billing will include replacement cost of the item and per item processing fees.
First and second level overdue notices will be delivered to students, faculty, and staff via your Pellissippi State email account. Third notices and bills will be mailed to your home address of record via the U.S. Postal Service. Community Borrowers and TBR/UT borrowers will receive all notices by mail. Overdue notices are sent as a courtesy to library users. Failure to receive notices does not negate the library’s overdue and billing policy. It is the responsibility of the library user to check college email regularly and to notify the library of any changes in mailing address.
When items are 30 days past the due date, the library refers them to Business Services for billing. Business Services will send you a bill and add the billing to your Banner account. After an item(s) is referred for billing, processing fees will not be credited or refunded. Billed items may not be renewed. If the item(s) is returned in good condition within one year of the date it was referred for billing, the replacement cost of the item will be credited or refunded.
Outstanding bills are subject to College collection procedures and any resulting collection fees. This overdue and billing policy applies to all borrowers.
