Library Policies

  • A valid Rosemont ID is one’s library card.  Students must have it with them to borrow materials.      
  • There is no limit to the number of circulating books that can be borrowed.  Lending period for books and CDS is three weeks: renewals are requested via kdeeming@rosemont.edu, library X 2271, or in person.
  • Periodicals and reference books do not circulate.
  • Students may borrow up to three DVDs.  Lending period for DVDs is one week: there are no renewals. 
  • There is a $1.00 per item service for DVDs, CDs, or books that are returned late, and a $50.00 charge for any item not returned.  At the discretion of the borrower, one may replace the lost item in kind or pay the $50.00 replacement fee.
  • If borrowers have fines that have not been addressed, they will be barred from borrowing materials from the library after sufficient notification.  Prior to pre-registration, a list of borrowers’ outstanding fines is sent to the Registrar’s office and they will not be allowed to pre-register for classes until the fines are paid and/or the materials returned or replaced.
  • We ask that you respect others’ need for quiet by speaking in a low voice.  Please silence cell phones.
  • The computers in the Information Commons are provided for research.  Students doing research take precedence over those accessing e-mail, etc.  If there is an academic need for computers, you will be requested to vacate the station.
  • Documents and/or research to the library computers should not be saved either in the Information Commons and/or the Learning Commons (Computer lab on the ground floor).  Please be aware that these computers are cleaned of excess items on a regular basis, so anything saved will be deleted. 
  • When printing an article or document, you may print one copy.  If additional copies are needed, you should use the copy machines on the ground floor to make copies at $.15 per page.
  • Food and drink are allowed in the Café area of the Kistler Library.
  • Food and drink are never allowed in the computer areas.
