Lending Policies

The Mendik Library participates as a supplier in the OCLC Interlibrary Loan Subsystem. Our institutional symbol is ZNL. Our OCLC lending policies are available in the OCLC Policy Directory.

Loan Periods:

Monographs will circulate for two weeks.

The following types of materials do not circulate:

Multi-volume sets, in whole or in part
Loose-leaf materials
Reserve Collection materials
Reference Collection materials
Rare or fragile books
Materials held in special collections
Master microforms (The Library has a fiche-to-fiche duplicator which can make copies
of microfiche for loan.)

Local libraries may arrange to send a representative to copy non-circulating materials on the self-service copiers in the Library. A copy-card, available for purchase with cash from vending machines on-site, is required to use the copy machines.

The Library is cognizant of the Federal provisions governing copyright. We strive to offer interlibrary loan services in ways that do not infringe the relevant laws. We reserve the right to refuse a copying order if, in our judgment, fulfillment of the order would violate copyright laws.
