FAQ: What Other Services Does Circulation Provide?
Circulation staff also:
- Maintain the library's patron database. Everyone associated with the University (faculty, staff, students, etc.) is automatically entered into the library's database from the University's records. When you change your name or address at either the Registrar or Personnel Services, you will be automatically updated with us as well.
- Process TexShare cards. If you need to use another library, check with Circulation about your options.
- Collect Fines for overdue, damaged, and/or lost library materials, and other fees. If you have a delinquent library account, an administrative hold is placed on your record in the University's database. Failure to clear the delinquent account will result in referral of the account to a credit bureau for collection procedures.
- Maintain the Course Reserve collection, a closed stack (restricted access) area in circulation, and Electronic Course Reserves (E-Reserves). You may search for items that are reserved by searching the online catalog.
- Maintain the photocopier, which is located on the first floor of the library. Instruction on the use of and/or service of the photocopier is available from Circulation staff.
- Re-shelve the Loan, Youth, Paperback, New Books, and Featured Books collections.
- Collect membership fees for Friends of the Cornette Library. Patrons not associated with the University may join the Friends and receive a library card.
- Collect Lost & Found items. Personal items that have been left in the library are given to the Circulation staff. Each Friday these items are taken to the University Police (UPD).
