Placing Holds

Holds can be placed on items through online by logging into the library website with a CCC username and password. Librarians can assist. After the item on hold arrives at the pick-up location, students will get an email. Items will be held at pick up location for seven days and if not collected, items will be returned to the owning library.

Returning Library Materials

Materials checked out at the Daley Library can be returned at any CCC library, through the book drop. 

Lost/Damaged Book Policy

Students will be required to pay a replacement fee plus a processing fee(plus any late fee that may have accrued) for any lost or damaged books. The processing fee is $5.00. The replacement fee will be determined on a case-by-case basis. If the book is still in print, the fee will be no more than the current cost of a new copy of the book.

Fines from Other CCC Colleges

When students have fines from other CCC colleges on their library records, use of Daley College Library resources will be determined on a case-by-case basis and at the discretion of the librarian on duty. Fines must be paid at the college at which they are due, unless permission is granted by the library department chair at the college library where the fine is due.

Library Privileges

When a student’s account carries a balance of $25.00 or more, library privileges are paused until the fines are resolved.

When given the option to replace a lost or damaged book, the student will have a week from the day the terms are agreed upon to replace the item. 

I.D. Cards and Library Access

CCC Students / Staff / Faculty

Students, staff, and faculty are required to have a school identification card to check out items from the library including course reserve materials and the study room. 

Non-CCC Visitors

Non-CCC visitors are welcome to use materials in the library, but cannot check out items. Printing and copies can be made using a print card purchased for $1.00, which includes a $.50 credit.

Study Room

The group study room will be checked out to students for two hour periods. Students have priority for these rooms, but if there are available rooms and a member of the public would like a study room, they can be checked out in exchange for an ID, with the caveat that if a student needs a study room, the non-student will have to vacate the room. Food is not allowed in the study room.

**Study rooms are not available during the COVID-19 pandemic

Computer Use

Computer resources are limited and priority use is for students working on school assignments. Students must log into computers using CCC username & password. There are two guest computers available in the Daley library for community members without CCC credentials.  

Printers

To use the printer in the library, you will have to use a library computer and send your document to the printing station. Each page costs $0.05 to print using a purchased print card.

Copiers

Each black and white copy (1 page) costs $0.10, and color copies are $0.25. The copier can also scan pages to be sent to email instead of printed, this option is free of charge but requires the use of a print card that has money on it or cash to turn the copy options on.
