CCAD Packard Library Policies

Circulation Policy for Graduates

Graduate Privileges

Graduates are defined as any students who have officially obtained a degree from CCAD. Students who have taken classes at CCAD but have not received a diploma are not able to obtain library privileges. Faculty and staff who are no longer employed by CCAD are also not able to obtain library privileges. However, official Faculty Emeritus do have lifetime privileges. To enroll in Graduate Privileges, the graduate must fill out and sign a Graduate Privileges form (see bottom of this page). 

Library Materials and Account Access

Graduates need a valid ID to check out items. All CCAD graduates have lifetime library privileges. Graduates are allowed to check out up to 5 books, DVDs, circulating magazines, or other eligible items at a time. Graduates also have borrowing privileges through OhioLINK.

Graduates do not have off-campus database access due to contractual agreements with vendors, but they may use them in the library.

Graduates also do not have borrowing privileges for equipment (e.g. Cintiq pens, drawing aids, and other items).


The CCAD Packard Library sends automated overdue or item-on-hold-availability notices via provided email as a courtesy to our patrons. The library ultimately holds all of its patrons responsible for being aware of due dates for loaned items and for their prompt return.

If a CCAD Packard Library item is more than 30 days overdue, it will go into billing. It will result in a restriction being placed on a patron’s account and a $100 replacement fee. If an OhioLINK item has not been returned after 30 days, it will also go into billing. The patron will incur a $125 replacement fee. Patrons with restrictions are not able to check out further materials. Once the item is returned, the replacement fee will be removed.

In some cases, a patron may purchase a replacement copy, but it must be the same or a newer edition of the item. Please contact Leslie Jankowski, Director of Library Services, for approval at or (614) 222-3225.

The CCAD Packard Library accepts cash, checks, and credit cards (with a .50 service fee) at the library
