All users of the Warren D. Allen Music Library are expected to abide by the policies listed below. In addition, all Florida State University students are expected to abide by the FSU Student Conduct Code as listed at http://srr.fsu.edu/.
Please note that the following policy applies only to the Music Library, and not the University Libraries as a whole.
All FSU students, faculty, and staff have the right to recall items. Special Borrowers (including patrons from other state universities and community colleges) are not allowed to place recalls.
A patron may request that a recall be placed on library material that is currently checked out to another user. A recall may be initiated through the online catalog by clicking the “Place a Hold” link next to the item listing. An item that is on the shelf cannot be recalled; no hold link will be available for materials that are on the shelf.
When an item is recalled, the person who has the material currently checked out is notified via email of the recall and the adjusted due date. The adjusted due date will be either one week from the recall date or three weeks from the checkout date, whichever is later. Recalled overdue items are due back immediately. All patrons are entitled to borrow standard-loan materials for three weeks before having to surrender them to a recall.
For faculty members, the adjusted due date becomes the official due date of the material, regardless of the original due date. Overdue fines for faculty members will begin to accrue at a rate of 25 cents per day if a recalled item is not returned by the time the adjusted due date passes.
The patron who placed the recall is notified via email when the material has been returned and is ready to be picked up. Recalled books and scores are held behind the circulation desk for 10 days; media are held for 7 days. Materials not retrieved by the requester before the deadline will be reshelved.
