Renewal of library materials may be made on or before the item due date, providing no other patron has requested the item(s). (See chart above for renewal limitations.) CLU affiliates may log in to your library account to renew items online. Renewal requests may also be placed by speaking with a Pearson Library Circulation Desk attendant.

Interlibrary Loan: If Pearson Library does not have something that you need, it may be obtainable from another library via Interlibrary Loan. Interlibrary Loan materials (and other items placed on hold) can be picked up and returned to the Circulation Desk.

Holds: You may place a hold on an item (ask for a book to be held for you when it is returned) by using the Library catalog. The library will call you when the item is returned. Recalls are not available. If items are needed immediately for research purposes, please try ordering via Interlibrary Loan.

Course Reserves are located at the Circulation Desk and are available only to those enrolled in the course. The loan period for reserve materials is determined by the professor that has placed the items on reserve. All items are subject to immediate recall if needed for course reserves. See Circulation Services or contact Pearson Library for more information.

Library Fines and Replacement Charges:
• The Library does not charge daily overdue fines on General Collection materials. By logging in to MyCLU, you will be able to see a reminder of when your items are due and any fees posted to your library account. Long-overdue materials will be declared missing and you will be billed $50.00 for each item. When items over 2 months overdue are returned, there is still a $5.00 billing fee. Please consult with a librarian before purchasing an item for replacement of a library copy. Only approved replacement copies will be accepted in lieu of the $50 replacement cost. A $10.00 processing fee will still apply (in addition to the $5 billing fee).
• Recalls may only be made for materials that you wish to be placed on course reserve at Pearson Library. If items are needed immediately for research purposes, please try ordering via Interlibrary Loan.
• Overdue materials are not renewable and no additional items may be checked out to you (including Reserve items) until you return the overdue materials.

Theft and mutilation of Library materials are acts contrary to and punishable by law. Any non-circulating item, or any circulating item that has not been properly checked out, will cause the exit alarm to sound and the exit gate to lock. Repeated security violations will be referred to the Vice President of Student Affairs.

If you have any questions regarding these policies, please contact the Access/Circulation Supervisor in the library at (805) 493-3250.
