Home Student Resources Library Policies Faculty and Staff Library Lending Guidelines


All information on check out periods, limits, renewals, overdue, lost, and damaged items on our Check Out Policies page applies for faculty and staff.


The return of all library material is required upon resignation or retirement. Those who fail to return checked out items upon resignation or retirement will be billed a replacement fee(s).

Retiree Check Outs

The library is pleased to offer retired ARC faculty and staff the opportunity to continue using the library's general circulating collection. At no cost, retirees may check out three physical circulating items at a time.

Unfortunately, we are unable to offer renewals or Inter-Library loan services for retirees.

Emeriti members may access limited library databases when allowed by vendor licenses. Database access is provided when on campus, and may be available remotely through Single Sign-on or direct login. Contact Sarah Lehmann at for assistance.

As an alternative, we suggest you explore the Sacramento Public Library's excellent collection of online databases.

If you have further questions about checking out materials from the ARC library please call the Circulation Desk at (916) 484-8455.
