Lending Library for ISBONA Members

ISBONA Library Policies

ISBONA members in good standing are eligible to check out items from the library. Items are available for a 4 week check out for all members. There is a limit of three items per loan. You can contact our Librarian via email or telephone (see Contacts) with your choices.

Items will be sent through the US Postal Service/Canadian Postal Service and must be insured for full value. On return of materials to the librarian, please enclose a check made payable to ISBONA for the cost of shipping to you, including insurance. We will include instructions and a return mailing address in your package.

The borrower is responsible for damage to library material. If the material is damaged but useable, a prorated charge will be assessed and paid to the ISBONA Library Fund. Insurance claims must be submitted to replace materials lost in shipping. Claims for materials lost in shipping to borrower will be submitted by the librarian. Claims for materials being returned to the Library will be submitted by the borrower. A member who fails to file a claim will be billed for the lost item.

A late fee of $5 per week is charged for a maximum of four weeks past the due date. At the end of this period the member will be billed for the value of the item. If at this time the item is returned, only the $20 late fee will be due. If the account is not settled within one month of billing, it will be referred to the Board of Directors who are authorized to limit the member's ISBONA activities, up to and including terminating the member's ISBONA membership.

ISBONA Library Inventory

A list of the current ISBONA Library collection is printed below.

Please note that we also have copies of (almost) all ISBONA Newsletters (dating from 1997) and copies of the annual Southram guides to rams.

The Library also has some videotapes and audio tapes. However, borrowers have pointed out that the quality of these tapes is a serious problem. We have plans to convert them to better media and until that is completed those materials will not be made available for loan.
