Loans.

Materials from the college library media center are checked out only to the following groups:
(1) All currently registered students of the college;
(2) All current faculty and administrative staff members;
(3) All persons currently employed in classified staff positions;
(4) All holders of currently valid courtesy cards. This latter group includes members of the board of trustees, community educators whose work might necessitate usage of library-media materials, and other individuals who show a particular need for specialized items in the library-media collections which are not available elsewhere;
(5) Students from other institutions with which the college library-media center has a reciprocal lending agreement through a "shared use plan." This group may use materials on a loan basis at the discretion of the circulation supervisor who will determine lending priorities based upon the current usage of individual items by Lake Washington Institute of Technology students;
(6) Persons in charge of groups using college facilities under the terms of the facility use agreement; and
(7) Lake Washington School District No. 414 staff under terms of interlibrary loan agreements as may be approved by the college president or his or her designee.

Fines.

In cases where damage or loss of library material is evident, the offending patron will be assessed the replacement cost. In other instances where library-media materials are retained by the borrower beyond the designated due date, fines will be levied. When materials are not returned, or fines not paid, holds are placed on the transcript records of those involved in accordance with chapter 495D-122 WAC, or the matter may be referred for collection. In extreme cases, when expensive or valuable items are involved, the provisions of RCW 27.12.340 may be invoked.
