Faculty and staff must have a UCCS Faculty/Staff ID card to check out materials. Please see the Loan Periods Chart for check out periods for UCCS Faculty and Staff. Most items can be renewed three times unless the item is requested by another library user.
Faculty and staff check outs are recalled after 6 weeks if requested by another patron. One week is given for the return of the item. The faculty or staff member may request that the book be returned to them after use by the other patron.
Overdue & Lost Item Fees
Faculty and staff are not charged overdue fines. Faculty and staff are billed for lost materials. Items which have been overdue for over 3 months are considered lost. They are billed at the standard replacement charge or the cost of the item, whichever is higher.
Loss of Circulation Privileges
Failure to pay for books declared lost after several notices will result in the loss of circulation privileges, and, in keeping with University billing procedures, bills will be referred to a collection agency.
Spouses of full-time faculty can opt to receive a special borrower's card from the library that will grant them more privileges similar to a UCCS student.
If you (the faculty member) leave the University, the card will no longer be valid.
Additional ways spouses of CU faculty can check out books, are:
UCCS faculty and staff may request to have a Research Assistant account established for students who are conducting research for them and need to check-out and/or request KFL and Prospector items on their behalf.
Research Assistants must present both their Research Assistant Library Card and a valid picture ID (e.g. a UCCS ID card, driver's license, passport, military ID) when picking up items or requesting items under a Research Assistant accounts. Under no circumstances are patrons allowed to check-out items without presenting a valid picture ID.
