Guest Borrowers: A “Guest Borrower” card for $20 per year is available for those outside the college community who wish to borrow library material.  CSJ Alumni may obtain a guest card at no charge.

General Borrowing Privileges

You may borrow a maximum of 1 book from the circulating collections of the library at any one time. This excludes resources of the GRASP (Greater Rutland Asian Studies Project) collection and the CRL (Curriculum Resource Library).  The GRASP collection is restricted to those Schools that have valid cards provided by the GRASP Coordinator, and Students, Faculty and Staff of the college. Materials in the library video recording collection do not circulate to guest borrowers.

You may use non-circulating materials (reference, periodicals, microforms, and special collections) in the library.

You may make use of other library services, such as reference assistance, photocopy machines, and the library computer lab printer.

Your card is non-transferable and may be used only in person. For your protection, we require a second form of identification (e.g. driver’s license) or your alumni borrower’s card to charge out books.

Your card does not permit you to access subscription library databases from outside of the library. You may, however, make use of these resources in the library.

Lost Books

  1. Library material that has been lost must be paid for by the borrower.
  2. A charge of $50.00 + $5.00 processing fee per book.  If the replacement cost exceeds $50.00, you will be billed for the additional amount.
  3. Guest borrowers will not be allowed to check out additional material until all library material has been returned.
