FA C U L T Y Faculty
BOOKLET 2004 – 2005 of Science & Agriculture
The Library is open to registered graduate and undergraduate students and staff of all campuses of The University of the West Indies.
Visiting research workers, faculty and students of other universities and tertiary level institutions may be granted reading and reference privileges on rec- ommendation of a faculty member, and at the discre- tion of the Librarian.*
Other non-university persons over the age of 16 may be granted reading and reference privileges. This is, however, subject to a review by the Librarian on duty and is dependent on the specific need of the particular person.
A fee may charged for long periods of use or repeated use as outlined in Information Bulletin No. 9 (Rev.).
d. Users in this category are not allowed loans.
No book, periodical or other library material may be removed from the Library unless it has been legitimately charged out at the Loans Desk and the date label stamped by a member of staff on duty. A user is responsible for any book or other item borrowed in his/her name. This responsibility ends only when the loan is officially cancelled. Failure to comply with this rule will be treated as a major and deliberate offence.
Users’ identification cards are not transferable. It is a major offence to lend or borrow identification cards. Persons contravening this rule may have their library privileges withdrawn or may be referred to the Principal for further action.
Certain publications may not be removed from the Library. These include all materials from the West Indiana & Special Collections Division as well as reference books, specially marked items from the closed reserve collection and works of special value. All such material will be clearly marked.
Loans may extend for varying periods depending on the extent of demand for each item. All material loaned will be subject to recall by the Librarian at any time. No loans may be renewed for more than seven (7) days.
In cases where a book issued on loan is requested by another user, it may be recalled after it has been on loan for a minimum of seven days. A new date due is assigned and fines are charged for non-return of the item after the new date.
Undergraduate students of the University may have on loan up to six (6) books at a time. They may not borrow serials. Two Reserve items may be borrowed at a time either for use in the Library or on overnight loan. Two additional items from the Reserve Collection may also be borrowed for three (3) or seven (7) days.
