CHECK OUT POLICIES
All borrowers must present a valid ID from Trident Technical College or one of the following academic libraries: Charleston Southern University, The Citadel, The College of Charleston, The Medical University of S.C., or any South Carolina technical college.
TTC students may borrow 10 items, including no more than 3 DVDs at a time.
**Log in to your library account to see what items you have checked out, when they are due, and if you have any late fees.**
All Trident Tech students, faculty and staff are able to check out books from other participating PASCAL libraries if you are in good standing with your home institution, with no late fees or overdue items.
For Trident Tech students, faculty, and staff to check out a book from a participating PASCAL institution, you will have to present a picture ID and know your 7 digit student ID number. If you do not know this number, it can be found in TTC Express under “My profile”.
Students, faculty, and staff from participating PASCAL institutions who wish to check out books from Trident Tech will have to present a picture ID and institutional ID or authentication code from their home institution.
Patrons visiting other libraries in-person are limited to three items and the checkout period for these items is three weeks with no renewal. If a book is lost, there is a $75.00 replacement fee and a $25 handling fee. After the six week lending period has expired, patrons should receive three overdue notices. After the third overdue notice, patrons will be billed $100.00, reflecting the combined handling fee and lost book fee. If the overdue book is returned, the fine will be cleared from your record.
Visit the PASCAL Delivers Visiting Patron page for more information on policies and individual institutions.
Interlibrary Loan is a service offered by libraries to expand the resources available to their clientele. Materials are borrowed from other libraries for the specific research needs of students, faculty and staff.
The copyright law of the United States (Title 17, United States Code) governs the making of photocopies or other reproductions of copyrighted material. Under certain conditions specified in the law, libraries and archives are authorized to furnish a photocopy or other reproduction. One of these specified conditions is that the photocopy reproduction is not to be "used for any purpose other than private study, scholarship, or research." If a user makes a request for, or later uses, a photocopy or reproduction for purposes in excess of "fair use," that user may be libel for copyright infringement. This institution reserves the right to refuse to accept a copying order if, in its judgment, fulfillment of the order would involve violation of copyright law.
Copyright law limits the number of articles photocopied to five from any given periodical published in the previous five calendar years.

STUDY ROOM POLICY
The LRC study rooms are available only to TTC students for the purpose of study groups or quiet study. The rooms are not available for club or organization meetings, for adjuncts needing office space, or for outside entities who wish to conduct business. Students using study rooms for activities other than studying will be asked to vacate the room. Students should follow the occupancy restrictions posted outside each study room door. The large study rooms are locked and are for the use of groups of three or more. Requirements for using the group study rooms are as follows:
Students should remember that study rooms are not sound-proof and noise should be kept at a reasonable level. As in the rest of the LRC, talking on cell phones, eating, and bringing children into a study room are not allowed.
Students with concerns or needing clarification of this policy should contact the library.
The Trident Technical College Learning Resources Center provides resources and services that are relevant to the nature and needs of TTC’s students, curriculum and instructional programs and that promote intellectual growth and cultural development of TTC students, faculty and staff.
