Library Cards

Picture ID cards are obtained at the time of registration and are accepted at all Maricopa Community Colleges. IDs are valid for the current semester only. Present your current GCC picture ID card at the Circulation Counter to be validated. ID cards are not transferable. Borrowers are responsible for any use of their library card, unless reported lost.

Checkout Procedure

A current student, staff or faculty ID, or a Community Borrower card, MUST be presented at the circulation counter to checkout ANY item. Student IDs may be obtained at the Enrollment Center.

Return of Materials

Book returns are located on the east end of the Media counter, at the west end of Circulation counter, outside the exit door on the west end of the library, and on the curved drive on the east side of the campus. Return reserve materials to the Circulation counter.

Overdues and Debts

All borrowers are responsible for lost and damaged library material and will be billed for replacement and processing debt posting costs.

Debts are posted on all unreturned material and are posted to the borrower's school record. Failure to receive overdue notices does not remove the responsibility for paying associated debts.

Debts: The borrower will be charged a $5.00 debt posting fee per item plus replacement cost of the item. The replacement cost will be waived if the item is returned, however, the $5.00 fee per item will not be waived. Reserve items are subject to other fines. Reserve material will accrue an additional fine of $5.00 per day, per item, for each day overdue.

The Debt posting fee is determined by the Maricopa Community Colleges Governing Board. Unpaid debts can be collected by the Arizona Department of Revenue or collection agencies.

Reserves

Heavy demand classroom materials may be placed on reserve by instructors and are available at the Circulation desk. The loan period is generally two hours. Reserve items may not be taken from the library. One Reserve item may be checked out at a time.

Interlibrary Loans

Books or copies of articles in periodicals not located in the library may often be obtained from other libraries. This service is free for most requests. Requests are normally filled in 7 days from MCCCD libraries, but allow a minimum of two weeks for requests outside of the district. You may have the book on loan for our normal loan period unless otherwise stipulated by the lending library. The library does not loan non-print or media materials through interlibrary loan.

Individual students and faculty are limited to seven outstanding/active interlibrary loan requests at any one time. An outstanding request is a request that is placed into the online system. An active request indicates that the borrower is still in possession of the loaned material.
