VISITING PATRONS

All Trident Tech students, faculty and staff are able to check out books from other participating PASCAL libraries if you are in good standing with your home institution, with no late fees or overdue items.

For Trident Tech students, faculty, and staff to check out a book from a participating PASCAL institution, you will have to present a picture ID and know your 7 digit student ID number. If you do not know this number, it can be found in TTC Express under “My profile”.

Students, faculty, and staff from participating PASCAL institutions who wish to check out books from Trident Tech will have to present a picture ID and institutional ID or authentication code from their home institution.

Patrons visiting other libraries in-person are limited to three items and the checkout period for these items is three weeks with no renewal. If a book is lost, there is a $75.00 replacement fee and a $25 handling fee. After the six week lending period has expired, patrons should receive three overdue notices. After the third overdue notice, patrons will be billed $100.00, reflecting the combined handling fee and lost book fee. If the overdue book is returned, the fine will be cleared from your record.

Visit the PASCAL Delivers Visiting Patron page for more information on policies and individual institutions. View this video for help with requesting books through PASCAL Delivers.

Copyright Restrictions

The copyright law of the United States (Title 17, United States Code) governs the making of photocopies or other reproductions of copyrighted material. Under certain conditions specified in the law, libraries and archives are authorized to furnish a photocopy or other reproduction. One of these specified conditions is that the photocopy reproduction is not to be "used for any purpose other than private study, scholarship, or research." If a user makes a request for, or later uses, a photocopy or reproduction for purposes in excess of "fair use," that user may be libel for copyright infringement. This institution reserves the right to refuse to accept a copying order if, in its judgement, fufillment of the order would involve violation of copyright law.

Copyright law limits the number of articles photocopied to five from any given periodical published in the previous five calendar years.
