The circulation desk is located on the second floor of Savery Library. This is where materials can be checked out and reserve materials can be located.
Check-out privileges are granted to all currently enrolled students, faculty, and staff of Talladega College, all that is needed is the Talladega ID (student, staff, or faculty). Alumni and citizens of Talladega are also able to check out items. Alumni and citizens of Talladega are able to use their driver’s license and a piece of mail, dated within the past 30 days, with the individual’s name on the mail item. This will enable the staff to create an account for the individual in our circulation system.
Most of the items in the library circulate. However, reference items, textbooks, and archival items do not circulate.
The loan periods for books are as follows: students-2 weeks, faculty-3 weeks, staff-3 weeks, Alumni-2 weeks, and Talladega Citizens-2 weeks.
An item may be renewed up to 2 times for a student, Alumni, and Talladega Citizens, and 3 times for faculty and staff, as long as it is not on reserve for another patron.
Overdue items are charged $0.25 per day per item.
Any lost materials should be reported to the library staff as soon as possible. If the book is lost, the individual must pay the current list price of the book. If the book is out-of-print, the current list price will be assessed at $25.00. Amazon.com is the vendor used to determine the current list price for books.
Textbook materials are those items selected by the faculty for classes. They are housed behind the circulation desk and are not circulated. These items must be used in the library, in case of high demand, use will be limited to two hours.
Reserve materials are those selected by the faculty for special assignments, or because the materials are in short supply. They are housed behind the circulation desk under the name of the faculty member reserving them. All reserve materials must be used in the library. In case of high demand, use will be limited to two hours.
Reference books, periodicals, newspapers, textbooks, and reserve items may not be checked out to leave the library.
