Borrowing Books, Media, and Periodicals
Faculty and Staff may borrow books and periodicals in the CTL Reading Collection. Loan periods are:
- Sinclair books - 70 Days
- OhioLINK books - 3 weeks
- Sinclair Periodicals - 1 week
If Sinclair materials are needed for a longer loan period, faculty should contact the reference librarian on duty for special arrangements. Extended loans will be permitted in some circumstances that promote the work of the college. OhioLINK books can only be borrowed for 3 weeks, but often they can be renewed to extend the length of the loan.
Faculty and staff are subject to overdue fines for delinquent OhioLINK books.
