Extended Campus Library Policies
Students may check out up to 5 items at any one time for a period of 3 weeks. Items may be renewed once more, for a total of 6 weeks. Faculty and staff may check out up to 10 items at any one time for a period of 4 months, or 1 semester. All library materials must be checked out through the center Registrar. Library materials are not to leave the library unless they are properly checked out via the library system.
Library materials should be returned to the liaison to be checked in by their due date. Items may be renewed in person with the liaison or online by going to the Library Catalog. Once there, click on “My Account” at the top of the screen in the middle, and enter your Faulkner student ID# and your library PIN. If this is the first time that you have logged in to the Library Catalog or if you cannot remember your PIN you can click on “Forgot my PIN” and follow the instructions provided. You will then have the option to renew 1 or more items that are checked out.
Food and drink are not allowed in the Resource Room to prevent library materials and furnishings from being damaged.
General questions about the Resource Room and library resources may be directed to the appropriate library liaison.
In-depth reference questions and assistance with databases or the library website may be directed to Ask-A-Librarian form or email firstname.lastname@example.org. You may also contact the main campus library at 334-386-7207.

Library Item Request
If you need materials located at one of the other Faulkner campuses, please fill out the Library Item Request form on the library website and these items will be mailed to your respective registrar. You will be contacted to pick up the items when they arrive; please return the items to the registrar by the due date given.
If you need articles that are not available from any of the Faulkner University libraries, you may either fill out the Interlibrary Loan form on the library website or use the respective reciprocal library for your campus. For print material (books) it is recommended you use a local library for interlibrary loan as you will receive items more quickly locally.
