Library & Documentation Procedures

General Rules |Disciplinary Procedures | Dress Code | Library & Documentation Procedures / Attendance

The librarian will assist students in locating and checking out books. Students will follow library procedure for checking out and returning books. Books which are only being used in the building need not be checked out, but must be returned to the library when students are finished using them. Books may be checked out for one week and may be renewed unless there is a waiting list for the book(s).

Except in cases of a special research, books will not be checked out for extended periods to keep the books accessible for the use of all students. Faculty members may place certain books on reserve, which means they can be checked out only in accordance with their instructions (for example, they may limit use of books to one hour per student). Periodicals and audiotapes are available. Please indicate "Periodical" or "Tape" when signing out these materials.

Students are advised to make good use of their time, not only in class, but in periods of study following classes.

Documentation Procedures

Students will be taught and required to use the MLA (Modern Language Association) style for the preparation and documentation of all papers and reports. Students unfamiliar with the MLA format may consult Hodges’ Harbrace College Handbook, a copy of which is available in the school library.
