STCC borrowing privileges are extended to current students, faculty, and staff of the Cooperating Colleges of Greater Springfield consortia provided they have registered with their institution’s library and have library records in good standing. College library cards or IDs are required at check out and some audiovisual items may be limited. STCC students, faculty, and staff have reciprocal borrowing privileges at these institutions in accordance with their circulation policies.
The length of time an item will circulate is dependent on the format and type of library card used to borrow. STCC students may borrow print material for a period of 28 days and audiovisual material from 2–7 days depending on format. Most items may be renewed one time either through the library catalog or by the Circulation staff in the library.
STCC students must return all borrowed material prior to the end of each semester. Failure to do so will result in a library block placed on their college account. Blocked students do not have access to registration, grades, transcripts, certificates, or degrees.
Reserve material is kept at the Circulation Desk. Most items are library use only and require a college ID or library card to access. Copy machines and scanners are available for student use.
Study room keys are available to groups of two or more on a first-come, first-served basis at the Circulation Desk. College ID’s or STCC library cards are required to borrow keys. The library staff reserves the right to limit loan periods during times of exceptional demand.
Study room keys will circulate to STCC academic study groups of 2 or more people, for a period of 2 hours.
Patrons will be required to leave their student IDs with the Circulation staff in exchange for the Study Room Key.
The keyholder is responsible for the key, group behavior, and the condition of the room.
Library staff, at their discretion, will terminate sessions if the study rooms are not being used appropriately or if excessive noise disturbs other patrons.
Keys are available to STCC students, faculty, and staff members only.
