Setting Up Your Library Account

**You must have a Computer Services account and Rockhurst email account created before a library account can be set-up.**

Computer Services will provide you a unique campus code ID (the 6 digit number on your Rockhurst ID). This will allow you to have remote access to your library account and library databases.

Remote access to your library account allows you to:

·         See a list of items you have checked out and when they are due

·         Renew items, if they can be renewed

·         See a list of the fines you owe

 

Library Lending Policies

  • All students must present a valid Rockhurst ID card for checkout – no materials will be checked out without an ID card.
  • Library staff will not check out materials to any students who attempt to use their card to check out materials for anyone but themselves. Any student who attempts to check out materials for anyone else may lose his/her checkout privileges
  • There is no limit on the number of Rockhurst owned materials that can be checked out by students. A 10 item limit applies to KC/MOBIUS borrowed items.
  • Students may check out books, videos, audiocassettes, filmstrips, government documents, and slides for four (4) weeks.
    • Reserve materials can be checked out according to the limitations assigned to the materials.
  •  Materials may be renewed if no other person has placed a hold on the material. Two renewal periods totaling four weeks each are permitted allowing a student to have an item for a period of nine weeks. 
    • There are two means of renewing materials: in person with the items OR using the online catalog My Account. Further renewals require the material to be returned to the library and renewed in person.
    •  All materials borrowed from Greenlease Library must be returned before the end of the current school semester.
      • Materials may be returned to a nearby MOBIUS participating library, however, the student must build in a cushion of time for processing the materials back to Rockhurst prior to the due date. The student is responsible for the items until checked in at Greenlease Library.
  • Periodicals and reference materials cannot be checked out.
  • You are notified via your Rockhurst email account when any requested book is ready for pick-up at the library. 

Overdue Items and Fines

Overdue fines are charged for all materials returned late. There is no grace period on overdue fines. The fine rates are as follows:

  • Books: RU does not charge for overdue books, however, books from Mobius libraries will be fined at the rate specified by the loaning library
  • Videos/DVDs: $1.00 per day
  • Laptops: $.50 per hour
  • Reserve items: $.50 per hour

Students with overdue books, outstanding library fines or fees will NOT be allowed to continue to check out materials until the fine or fee has been paid.

For fines over $25.00 a hold will be placed on the student's account and no transcripts will be released until the account is paid in full.

Lost or Billed Items

Replacement Fees are as follows:

  • Rockhurst or KC-Towers Cluster materials: $75.00 per item replacement fee
  • MOBIUS materials (outside of Kansas City Cluster): $120.00 per item replacement fee

 Any student who fails to pay fees will have his/her record turned over to the Rockhurst University Business Office for collection and no transcripts will be released until accounts are paid in full.
