Library Policies


Library Patrons
Any Lakeshore Technical College (LTC) student or staff member may borrow materials from the Library. Students and staff must have an active LTC ID# or ID card to check out material. There is no limit on number of other items a patron in good standing may borrow.

Community members of the LTC District are welcome to use the resources in the library as long as student, faculty and staff access is not infringed; they are limited to borrowing 5 items at one time.  All residents must be over the age of 16 and show proof of identity. Item holds, interlibrary loan, reserve materials including devices and equipment, and remote access to databases are not available to Community borrowers.

LTC Library follows Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA), Wisconsin Statutes Section 43.30 and Wisconsin Personal Information Practices Act (Sections 19.62 to 19.80) in protecting the confidentiality of patron records. No personally identifiable information is retained beyond the time period necessary for Library operations.

Overdue Fines and Damage/Loss Charges

Responsibility for the return of materials and/or the cost of lost or unreturned materials plus any overdue fine will be charged to the person in whose name the items were checked out.

Materials not renewed or returned by the date due are considered overdue. Patrons with material checked out receive a courtesy notice before the item(s) due date, three overdue notices, and a Final Bill.  Items more than one month overdue are considered lost and billed for the replacement amount plus $10.00 overdue fee per item (for devices, equipment, and reserve items). Once the Final Bill has been sent, patrons owing more than $30.00 will be entered in the LTC Financials Pre-Collection process.

Notices are sent to patron’s student email address and to the mailing address on file with the College. Failure to receive a notice does not remove the borrower's obligation to return materials on time or to pay charges incurred.

Renewals
Most Library materials may be renewed for additional loan period(s) in person, by phone 920.693.1130, or email library@gotoltc.edu .  Renewals are not permitted on items requested by another person or if the patron has overdue materials and/or fines.

Hold and Booking Requests
LTC students and staff may to place a hold on library material (via the library catalog, in person, over the phone, or by email).  Requester is notified via their campus email address when the item is ready to be picked up.

LTC Staff members may book future requests for Staff Equipment, E-readers, Tablets, and laptops through the library catalog to ensure material is available when needed. Requester is notified via their campus email address when the item is ready to be picked up.
