Services

Circulation of Materials

Most Learning Resource and Technology Center (LRTC) resources check out for 21 days and can be renewed. Fines are not charged for overdue materials, but items must be returned to avoid placement of a hold on a student's record, preventing the student from registering for classes or receiving grades and transcripts. If individuals damage or lose materials, costs for replacement will be assessed.

Periodicals' Holdings

For a list of the LRTC's holdings of scholarly and popular periodicals, see the PALSconnect Linker A-Z List.  For access to back issues of these titles, contact the LRTC Service Desk.
