NBCE Reference Texts Circulation Rules
Books located on the NBCE display shelves do circulate. Please present a photo ID to a library staff member.
Circulation rules for NBCE Books:
- Checked out for two hour period
- Renewed one time for an additional two hours
- May leave the library to an outside location -- study wherever you'd like!
- Limited to three at a time.
- No overnight checkout. Items not returned by the end of the day will accumulate fines by the hour.
You may renew these items:
- In person by bringing either the books or your ID to the library (3rd floor at the Davenport Campus)
- By calling us during open hours at (563) 884-5209
Don't forget to bring the books back to the desk when they're due. Items need to be checked in by library staff so fines don't accumulate.
Fines for overdue NBCE books are $1.00 per hour per item.
