Wingate University Faculty/Staff may reserve designated areas of the Library for classroom/meeting use. Faculty/Staff are responsible for enforcing and adhering to all Library policies and procedures (rules and regulations) during the period of the reservation or general facility use. Faculty/Staff who do not consistently comply with Library policies and procedures will lose facility privileges. If a Faculty/Staff member plans to use the Library resources during a class time, they must first advise the Library Staff of their intent so that appropriate Staff will be available to assist students. Reservations must be placed at least 24 hours in advance. With the exception of the Cornwell Room and AV Auditorium, rooms are reserved on a first come – first served basis. Regularly scheduled classes take precedence over single reservations.

General Policies for Reservations and Equipment
All AV reservations are entered and tracked on the EKSplorer Media Module. AV room/equipment must be reserved at least 24 hours in advance of need. Only Library Staff, not Student Library Assistants may accept equipment reservations. When picking up reserved equipment, faculty members must complete the Equipment Check Out Form and present their Wingate University ID card in order to have the equipment charged out through the Media Module. Borrowed items must be returned on time. Due to the high demand for rooms/AV equipment, the Library Staff requests that reservations be made at least 24 hours in advance.
In the event that a room/equipment reservation becomes unnecessary, that reservation should be cancelled in a timely matter. Rooms not claimed by patrons within 30 minutes after their reservation time shall be considered unclaimed and made available to other patrons. Equipment not claimed after 2 hours of a reservation time will be considered unclaimed and the reservation cancelled. Patrons with more than 2 unclaimed reservations in a given semester will lose the privilege of reserving rooms and/or equipment for the remainder of the semester. Patrons with more than 4 unclaimed reservations will have the balance of their reservations cancelled for the semester.
Late, Lost, and Damaged Items
All borrowed equipment must be returned on time. Equipment will be considered late if returned more than 30 minutes after the scheduled return time. Patrons, including Faculty and Staff, will be charged $1.00/hour that an item is late in being returned. Patrons that accrue fines equal to or in excess of $10.00 will lose all reservation privileges until all fines are settled. When returned, all equipment is inspected before being released to another patron. Should parts be found missing upon equipment return, that equipment will not be available for use until all parts are returned. Should an item be returned damaged due to negligence, the Department represented by the patron will be liable for its repair or replacement. If the patron did not borrow the equipment for Departmental use, the patron will be liable for its repair or replacement. Items not returned within 24 hours of their due date will be considered “LOST.” If an item is not returned within a week of its due date, the Library shall send an inter-departmental transfer in the amount of the equipment cost.
Until the IDT request is resolved, no future reservations shall be made to members of that entire Department.
