Upon payment, lost items will be considered the property of the borrower.

Renewals - Books, journals, and media may be renewed as long as there are no “Holds/Recalls” on the materials, or the maximum number of renewals has been reached. These items may be renewed online, at the circulation desk, or by contacting us.

Holds and Recalls -  Holds may be placed on items that are currently checked out to another patron. This may be done online or at the Circulation Desk. If an item “on hold” becomes overdue, a “recall” notice will be sent to the delinquent patron.

Purchase Suggestions -  We welcome purchase suggestions. Please contact, Ellen Dickman, LRC Director, or use the online form.

InTouch -  InTouch is a citation list of current articles of interest that is compiled by the librarians at Logan. Full text of the articles may be accessed through the Journal Holdings List.

Faculty Publications -  Browse recent materials published by Logan faculty in the Faculty Publications research guide. Please contact Sheryl.Walters@logan.edu, to suggest any additional publications.

Full Text  - Need help with full text of an article? Check our access through the Journal Holdings List. If the article is outside of Logan's collection, contact us and we will order it by interlibrary loan. 

Literature Search and Citation Service -  Logan Librarians will perform a literature search on your subject of interest, or provide you with a requested amount of articles on your topic. Please contact Sheryl.Walters@logan.edu, for a literature search or other reference services/instruction you require.

Faculty Long-Term Loan Policy -  When a faculty member needs a book for an extended period of time, for a course or for research, a Long-Term Loan request should be initiated. Please contact the LRC for more information on the purchasing process. The faculty member is responsible for long-term loan materials and must return them to the library when the course or research has been completed. When a faculty member’s contract is completed/terminated, all library materials, including long-term loans, must be returned to the library. The cost of the long-term loan materials is charged to the faculty member’s department.
