Magazines and Journals

Magazines and Journals


Hackney Library only has a few physical magazines and journals left in our holdings as most of our periodicals are digital at this point, but we still have policies regarding those few remaining physical periodicals.

Magazines and journals may only be checked out by college faculty and staff. Any other removal of such material from the library will be considered as theft. Mutilation or the tearing out of pages from a magazine will also be considered as theft. When the library identifies a student as having stolen or mutilated a magazine or journal, he/she will be billed for the cost of a single issue of that periodical or if that cannot be determined, $10.00. Unpaid student bills of this nature will result in blocks on registration and transcripts.

Renewals

Renewals


Patrons are entitled to two renewals on items. However, if a hold has been placed on the item, then a renewal will not be allowed. You many request a renewal by calling the circulation desk, (252) 399-6500. However, overdue items CANNOT be renewed over the phone. Overdue items must be returned to the library to ensure the items have not been lost or damaged.

Holds and Recalls

Holds and Recalls


If a book you need is checked out, you may request at the Circulation Desk that the book be held for you upon its return. If the book has been checked out for at least two weeks, you may ask for it to be recalled. All patrons are eligible to request a hold on materials currently checked out. Only Barton College students, faculty, and staff are eligible for recall privileges.

  • In either case, you will be notified when the book is available, and it will be held for you at the Circulation Desk.
  • Books needed for Reserve take precedence over any other need and may be recalled at any time.
  • Recalled books not returned within 7 days are fined at the rate of $1.00 per day per book.
