Library Procedures

Circulation Procedures

  • Students must present a valid student identification card to borrowing circulating materials
  • The loan period for circulating books is fourteen (14) days
  • The loan period for circulating audiovisual items in three (3) days
  • Library patrons may borrow up to five (5) books at one time
  • Library patrons may renew books on loan from the library twice
  • Library patrons must renew library books in person
  • Library patrons may not renew books with a hold or recall request


Failure to return checked out materials will result in the patron’s student record being placed on hold, preventing subsequent registration or transcript release until the materials are returned to the library or the appropriate fines are paid. Materials not returned within 30 days after the hold has been placed will be assumed to be lost. The patron’s record will remain on hold and a charge for the cost of the material will be assessed. Before the hold can be removed from the patron’s student record, the cost of the material must be paid in full at the cashier’s office

Reserve and Teacher's Reserve

Instructors can house course materials within the library to be loaned to their students. Loan periods for these resources are determined by the instructor. Most reserved material cannot be taken from the library.

Reference Services

The library staff at Coastal Pines Technical College (CPTC) is dedicated to serving its library patrons to fulfill their informational needs. Special assistance will be given to patrons who are unfamiliar with the advanced technological information retrieval systems.

Reference services will be provided on a first-come, first-served basis. Priority is given to Coastal Pines Technical College students, faculty and staff. All patrons are required to have their student identification cards. All students must also adhere to the posted rules regarding the library facilities and computer resources.

Library Orientation/Instruction

Library Orientation/Instruction is presented to students during each term. Sessions can be scheduled in the library, a computer lab, or within a classroom. Instructors are encouraged to incorporate library activities within their curriculum. Bibliographic instruction, along with an online orientation and reference services, are made available to all online students through GVTC, which is currently used to facilitate distance education classes for CPTC online students.

Instructors may schedule workshops, tours, and bibliographic instructions during the academic term. Please send in your requests for bibliographic instruction one week in advance. Instructors may visit the library or send request via email to
