Circulation Policies for Distance Students
Thomas University Library does not issue library cards for its patrons. Thomas University students can obtain a student identification card from campus, but it is not required to check out library materials. Students and community members should show some form of identification such as a Driver's license or student ID to check out library items and pay library fines.
Distance students may request that circulating TU library items be mailed to them. Verification of current student status will be made for all new library borrowers. Distance students are defined as those who are taking all their classes online, AND live outside the Thomasville area (45+ miles away). The borrower is responsible for return shipping costs and any overdue fines.
