Answer

PCC-issued photo ID cards are now available to full-time staff and faculty members. The photo ID card includes a 14-digit barcode that also serves as the library card number.  Interested full-time staff and faculty can obtain a free photo ID by going to the Campus cashier’s office.

If you are a temporary employee or adjunct faculty member, go to any campus library to obtain a Library card.  You will be asked to provide proof of employment at Pima and will need to fill out an application in order to obtain a Library card.

Faculty are allowed up to 100 checkouts.

Adjunct faculty cards expire the last day of the spring semester, at which point they need to reapply for a card. Adjunct faculty may also continue using the library as community borrowers. After extended periods with no activity, full time faculty and staff records may be deleted from the library database, at which point these users need to apply for new cards as well.

Length of Checkouts

  • Books: Six months, with two renewals unless a hold or recall has been placed on the item, in which case it cannot be renewed and must be returned.
  • Leased Book and Paperback Collections: Three weeks, with two 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, with two 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.

Overdue Materials

Faculty are billed for overdue materials. To clear the bill, return the overdue items or pay the bill. Daily overdue fines are not charged.
