FUSE Program Services
Undergraduate students who have been approved for a FUSE (Fund for Undergraduate Scholarly Experiences) grant may be awarded special loan privileges as it relates to their grant. Students will be sponsored by their FUSE Faculty advisor.
Special loan privileges will be given to students of FUSE if their grant requires that an item(s) be used consistently for an extended period of time.
Students will be sponsored by their FUSE faculty advisor.
Faculty members who wish to sponsor a FUSE student for special loan privileges may do so by completing the Application for Special Loan Privileges for FUSE Students and submitting it to the Circulation Staff.
The loan period for the item(s) under the loan privilege will be determined by the length of the grant.
All fines and blocks against the sponsored student’s record must be removed before special loan privileges will be approved.
If special loan privileges are approved, the student’s library account will reflect the extended loan period for the item(s).
The special loan privilege is not to exceed two semesters. If the item(s) is/are needed longer than two semesters, after the second semester, a new application will need to be filled out.
Item(s) will be due at the end of the agreed upon semester and the student will be responsible for returning the item(s). However, if the student does not return the item(s) in a timely manner, the faculty advisor will be called upon to make sure the item(s) is/are returned.
The application is not a means of ordering books not owned by the library. If you would like to request books be added to the collection please speak to the subject librarian in your field. Contact information can be foundhere
If the required item(s) are not currently available through Criss Library, contact your subject specialist librarian.
The faculty member and student will fill out the application. The application is available at the main service desk and here.
The application will be turned into a member of circulation staff, unless submitted online by the sponsoring faculty member.
Student will either bring item(s) to be used with the application or bring them separately after application has been approved.
Once the application is approved the student will be able to check out the item(s) for the indicated amount of time (maximum two semesters).
The student’s library account will reflect the extended loan time.
Item(s) will be due at the end of the agreed upon semester and the student will be responsible for returning the item(s). If the student does not return the item(s), the faculty sponsor will be held accountable.
For questions and concerns please speak to a Circulation Staff member or call the main service desk at 554-3206.
