Library Use Policies
The duPont-Ball Library is a private University facility reserved for use by Stetson University students, faculty, staff and their dependents. Policies and procedures on access for other persons are as follows.
The Federal and Florida government documents depository collections are readily accessible to the general public at no charge and without restriction.
Stetson Alumni (those holding a Stetson degree) may receive a complimentary Library Access Card upon request at the library's Circulation Services Department. Alumni are offered Library check out privileges either by joining the Stetson Library Associates at any level ($35 or more annually) or by purchasing a Hatter Alumni Card (see below).
Stetson Library Associates Membership
The Stetson Library Associates is a special group of individuals and organizations who are pledged to support the resources, services, and facilities of the duPont-Ball Library and the Jenkins Music Library at Stetson University. Each Stetson Library Associate will receive complimentary subscriptions to various Library publications and invitations to unique events sponsored by the Library. Depending on the level of support, a Stetson Library Associate will receive either a complimentary Library Access Card or a complimentary Library Membership Card.
A Stetson Library Associate at the Associate level ($35-$99 annually) will receive a complimentary Library Access Card that allows the cardholder to use the Library's book, periodical and reference collections. The Library Access Card is valid for one year and may be reactivated by renewing at the Associate level. The Access Card does not entitle the cardholder to check out materials from the library. Access Cards are issued only to individuals, are non-transferable, and are not issued to persons under 14 years of age.
A Stetson Library Associate at the Donor Associate level and above ($100 or more annually) will receive a Membership Card that entitles the cardholder to use the library's resources and to check out library materials. The Membership Card is valid for one year and may be reactivated by renewing at the Donor Associate level or above. Membership cards are issued only to individuals, are non-transferable, and are not issued to persons under 14 years of age.
Materials checked out on a Membership Card are the responsibility of the person to whom the card was issued.
