The most important things to remember are: 1) the rules and regulations of the LENDING library apply, not those of the borrower's home library; and 2) the individual borrower is responsible for learning and abiding by those rules and regulations. Loan periods, fines, policies, and procedures WILL vary from library to library and it is the individual borrower's obligation to keep track of them. Each library reserves the right to rescind the DAP card of anyone it determines is abusing the DAP borrowing privileges.
Unlike interlibrary loan or ConnectNY transactions, in a DAP transaction the patron is responsible for the material s/he borrows from the time of checkout at the lending library until the moment the material is checked back in at the lending library. Siena's Interlibrary Loan Department will return to its home library any DAP item found turned in at the Standish Library, but accepts no responsibility for charges should the item be lost, damaged, or returned to the lending library past the due date.
