Virtual Library Orientation: Borrowing from the Library

Welcome to the AUC Robert W. Woodruff Library Orientation LibGuide! You will find links and tutorials to get you started researching at the Library here.

Fines & Fees Amnesty Period

Fines and fees will be waived for all Library-owned overdue materials January 4 - 31, 2022. If you have materials that were obtained using the Library's Interlibrary Loan (ILL) Services, please contact Teva Sweet (tsweet@auctr.edu / 404-978-2025) to receive instructions and/or assistance with returning ILL materials, including pre-paid shipping labels.

Library Barcode

All Library users must obtain a Library barcode in order to exercise borrowing privileges. Please email barcodes@auctr.edu or call the Library’s Circulation Services Desk at (404) 978-2097 to obtain a Library barcode. Your campus ID credentials are required for registration. After a barcode has been issued, the next step is to establish your online Library account here. Input your barcode and click on the SET/RESET PASSWORD button. You will be emailed a link to establish your password.

Course Reserves - 2022 Spring Semester

The Library will be operating virtually until January 31. Physical course reserves will be suspended until the library building reopens. Faculty are asked to please use the Library’s electronic course reserves option. Under this option, the Library will search its collection for a digital version (e-book, book chapter, journal article, streaming video, etc.) of the requested course reserve materials and provide you links to digital versions of the materials which can be embedded in your course site. 

Unfortunately, not all requested course materials will have a digital version available at the Library. In these cases, the Library will do a fair use assessment to determine if a portion of your requested course materials can be made available through digitization.  The Library is generally willing to scan a single chapter from a book or a single article from a journal issue as a presumptively fair use. Please contact your Subject Librarian to make arrangements or for additional assistance. 

Students may access items placed on course reserves by logging in to their Library account and clicking on the Course Reserves link.

Renewing Materials

Library materials may be renewed twice if a "hold" has not been placed on the item. Items must be renewed on or before the due date. Materials cannot be renewed if they have been placed on hold by another patron, if the borrower has a delinquent Interlibrary Loan item(s), or any other outstanding fees due to the Library. As a courtesy, overdue notices are sent to borrowers after the loan period has expired. Users are responsible for all fines and fees whether or not a notice is received. Materials that have a "Hold" placed on them or have been renewed twice online must be returned to the Library by using the book return bin located on the front steps of the building.
