Answer

For PCC students...

  • Books:
    • 3 weeks
    • Plus 2 renewals, unless a hold or recall has been placed on the item, in which case the books cannot be renewed and must be returned.
    • Honors students may check out books for an entire semester when they show a librarian proof of admittance to the Pima Honors Program.
  • Videos:
    • 3 weeks
    • Plus 2 renewals, unless a hold or recall has been placed on the item, in which case the video cannot be renewed and must be returned.
  • Reserve Materials:
    • Checkout lengths of reserve materials are determined by the instructor.
    • Most reserve items circulate for two hours and for library use only

For PCC Faculty:

  • Books:
    • Six months
    • 2 renewals, unless a hold or recall has been placed on the item, in which case it cannot be renewed and must be returned.
  • Videos:
    • Three weeks
    • 2 renewals unless a hold or recall has been placed on the item, in which case it cannot be renewed and must be returned.
    • Faculty members using videos for their courses are encouraged to book the video at least a week in advance to assure the video is available. See the circulation staff at a campus library for information about booking videos for classroom use.
