Library Resources & Policies

Checking Out Books

Your SOWELA ID is your library card.

Books can be checked out of the library for the entire semester.  The SOWELA Library does not charge late fees, but students must pay to replace lost or damaged items. A $10 processing fee will also be charged when a book must be replaced because of damage or loss.

Books can be returned to the blue drop box on the side of the Arts & Humanities building facing the parking lot.

Books can only be checked out by currently enrolled students. Members of the public can use the books, but cannot take them out of the library.

Recommending and Acquiring New Books

Recommend titles for purchase using the Purchase Request Form.

See the "Library Collection Development Policy (PDF)" for more information on how the library selects, acquires, assesses and removes books from the collection.
