The Center for Teaching and Learning is pleased to invite the BYU campus community into our Lending Library. The following overview of library procedures and policies is intended to help patrons make the most of these valuable resources. For a list of available materials, click here.
Resources in the library are organized into categories (Assessment of Student Learning, Instructional Technology, etc.) and shelved alphabetically by author’s last name within each category. The easiest way to browse the library holdings is to come into the library and peruse the shelves. Upon request, the receptionist may query the database software by searching keywords (e.g., entering the word “iClicker” will bring up Teaching with Classroom Response Systems, by Derek Bruff).
When you know the title you would like to borrow, consider the category in which you might find the resource. If you cannot locate it this way, you may ask the CTL receptionist to help you locate the title using the database.
Multiple copies may be shelved in several categories. For example, copies of Tagg’s The Learning Paradigm College are shelved under (1) “Teaching & Learning,” (8) “Faculty Development,” and (12) “Higher Education.” Some books may be kept in a CTL location other than the library. The CTL receptionist can check the catalog for these alternate locations.
If a title is currently on loan, it can be reserved for your use when it is returned. Notify the receptionist of the book title/author you would like to reserve.
When you find a book you want to take out of the library, check out the volume by taking it to the CTL receptionist. He or she will take your identifying information if it is not already in the database. Provide a current email address in order to receive due-date reminders.
If the receptionist is unavailable when you wish to check out a book, please leave a note with your name, email address, title and author of the book you are borrowing.
Duration of Book Loan
Books are loaned for a period of one month. You will receive an email notification about one week prior to the due date.
When you are finished with a borrowed book, return it to the receptionist. If he or she is unavailable, please leave it on the desk with a note that includes your name and email address to ensure the receptionist processes the return correctly.
Email notification will be sent regarding overdue items.
CTL does not renew books via email or telephone. If you wish to continue using a book past its due date, please bring it back to the receptionist for renewal before the due date.
If you misplace a book, you are expected to pay to replace it at its current value.
