Taking the plunge on media policies

No longer will this library treat media items (DVDs, CDs, etc.) as if they are precious objects to be spared from the bothersome use of library patrons! Starting this summer our media lending policies will directly mimic our book lending policies. We are, in fact, doing away with media-specific "loan rules" all together and just merging media rules with book rules in our circulation system. And that means, to touch back on a theme which is a favorite of mine: NO FINES FOR MEDIA (for students, faculty (as if I could fine them anyway) and staff, though yes, there will still be fines for other library users…my staff isn’t ready to let go of those, though I tried).
