Check Out and Renew Materials

ASU Students may check out as many items as they wish, except for videos, which are restricted to two.

Items may be checked out for three weeks and may be renewed up to three times. Videos may not be renewed.

You can renew items online by logging into your account. You can also renew items by calling 719-587-7781, by emailing libcirculation@adams.edu, or by coming to the circulation desk.

All items are due back at the end of each semester regardless of the three week time period. If you would like to keep materials between semesters please stop by the circulation desk to make special arrangements.

Overdue items

After a grace period, you will be charged a $5 per item overdue fee. Until the overdue item is returned, you will be unable to check out further materials. Once the item is returned, your borrowing privileges will be restored.

A hold will remain on your ASU account until the fine is paid. This may prevent you from registering for classes or obtaining a transcript. Payment should be made at the ASU One Stop in the Student Union Building. The receipt must then be brought to the library in order for your library account to be cleared. After payment receipt, fines will be cleared within 1 business day.

Lost items

You will be charged for the replacement of the items plus a processing fee. We cannot accept replacement copies in exchange for the fee. Lost materials must be paid for before checking out additional materials. Payment should be made at the ASU One Stop in the Student Union Building. The receipt must then be brought to the library in order for your library account to be cleared.
