Students, faculty and staff at The University of Virginia's College at Wise need their campus ID card to check out any material. Community users may obtain a library card at the Circulation Desk; a positive ID is required. Patrons must have their library card to check out materials.

Students, community users and staff may borrow material for 3 week; faculty may borrow materials for the semester. If another patron has not requested the material, it may be renewed by calling the Circulation Desk. A patron may place a hold on material in order to prevent it from being renewed. A student may also recall material if it is held by a community user or has been held by a faculty member for 3 weeks.

Borrowing privileges are suspended when a patron has outstanding fines or overdue materials. Overdue fines are $0.10 a day per item for regular circulating material and accumulate until the item is returned or a replacement is paid for. Overdue fines on Reserve and InterLibrary Loan materials are $0.25 per day or hour per item. Notices for unpaid fines and overdue items are sent out regularly.

Student patrons will be unable to register until they settle their accounts.

Not all material in the library can be checked out.
