Checking out library materials is permitted for currently enrolled students, currently employed faculty and staff, and other individuals who have been approved with affiliate status for circulation privileges by the Access & Delivery Services Department. Report lost or stolen ID's immediately to the ID Center and to the Library Service desk.
All patrons must present a valid ASU photo identification card and/or an ArkLink Card or valid Courtesy Borrower's Card. The patron is responsible for all material borrowed against his/her ID. Affiliate status may be requested by completing a Courtesy Borrower's Card application.
Circulation privileges are not transferable from one person to another.
You are responsible for all library items checked out on your A-State library record.
A faculty member may send a GA to the Library to borrow materials, but they must have the faculty member's A-State ID card with them each time they borrow materials on behalf of the faculty member.

You can renew books online two times before having to physically bring them. Books can only be renewed online if they are not overdue and if they have not already been renewed twice.
Ever wonder why the Dean B. Ellis Library only allows two renewals before items must be physically returned to the Library, removed from your account, and check back out? This is because the State Auditor considers library materials, including books, to be state property. Therefore for inventory purposes, library personnel must physically see each item at least once per year.
But don't worry! You don't have to cart huge collections of books to the Library. Request a pickup and we can come to you and retrieve any items that need to be returned. We can even check the item(s) back to you and return them to you!
