LSU faculty, staff, and students must present a current LSU ID card in order to charge materials.
ID cards are not transferable.
Each individual is responsible for all library materials charged to his/her card.
Lost ID cards should be reported immediately to the ID Office in the LSU Union and to the Access Services Desk in LSU Library.
Faculty and graduate students in good standing may obtain a LOUIS Reciprocal Borrowers Card from the Access Services Desk or online which will allow them to get library privileges at other LOUIS institutions. A list of participating LOUIS libraries may be obtained from the LOUIS homepage.
When returning library materials, patrons may request a receipt if they return their items to a staff member at the Access Services Desk.
While it is preferred that library materials be returned to the circulation desk from which they were originally charged, they may be returned to any of the LSU Libraries' campus libraries or service units.
Every library patron has a right to privacy while using properly charged library materials. Names of borrowers will not be disclosed (Louisiana Revised Statutes, Section 44:13).
Please be aware that this statute prohibits us from discussing patron accounts with third parties, except in the case of parents of minor children. For privacy and security reasons, we also do not discuss patrons' accounts over the telephone. Patrons who have questions about their accounts should e-mail them to firstname.lastname@example.org and a library staff member will send a response to the patron's myLSU account. In compliance with Policy Statement 16.15, "Use of Electronic Mail," we will send e-mail communications only to the "lsu.edu" e-mail address if it exists. We will only use other types of e-mail addresses for correspondence in the case of public patron card users or former LSU employees and students whose myLSU accounts are no longer active.
