Returning Materials

Please return all items promptly. Because of our high circulation rate, we often schedule reservations for popular items very close together. If one user fails to return the item on time, it will not be available for the next user. Therefore, these rules will be strictly enforced.

We strongly recommend using United Parcel Service for return shipments if possible. If you believe your materials will not arrive by the due date, we encourage you to use a one-day service such as Overnight UPS, Airborne Express, Express Mail or Federal Express.

If you do use the US Postal Service, you must insure the package and we recommend using Priority Mail service and paying for a tracking number. Items are considered overdue even if they are shipped on time. Users who repeatedly return materials uninsured (if shipped using the US Postal Service) face suspension of borrowing privileges.

Whichever method of shipment you choose, be certain to keep your receipts for at least 90 days and be certain to pack and seal all packages carefully.

Overdue Materials

The due date is the date on which an item should be in our office. The first time a user fails to return materials within 5 working days (3 days for Tulane/Loyola patrons) of the due date will result in a warning. If more than five (or three) days late and the first offense OR the user is late returning materials a second time, then the user may have his or her borrowing privileges suspended two semesters. Suspension will be effective immediately, therefore any standing reservations will not be honored for the remainder of the suspension.

A user may renew borrowing privileges after the 2-semester suspension. In order to renew privileges, a returning user must fill out a new User’s Agreement. The first time a return user is late will result in permanent suspension of borrowing privileges.

Lost or Damaged Materials

User’s are responsible for the replacement cost of any materials lost or damaged while in their possession or during the return shipping they arranged. Many of our items are very valuable. To protect yourself please be sure to insure each item for at least $200.

View Full Event Description

The Latin American Graduate Organization will be hosting its 2018 Latin American Studies Conference titled Thinking of the Future: Expanding the possible in the Americas (Pensando en el porvenir: Expandiendo lo posible en las Américas) February 23 – 25, 2018, at Tulane University, in New Orleans, Louisiana.

This year, the conference topic is meant to challenge academics and activists to move beyond critiques and recommendations of how to address modern days issues, and instead articulate a vision of and for the future.

The LAGO Conference welcomes all disciplines and all approaches, as long as the project attempts to grapple with the idea of building something better. This is a Latin American Studies Conference, but creative writers, journalists, artists, performers, organizers, lawyers and healthcare providers as well as graduate students and other academics are welcome. Proposals are accepted in Spanish, Portuguese, Haitian Creole, and English.

Deadlines: Abstracts of papers and projects are due November 25, 2017. Abstracts of papers or project descriptions must not exceed 300 words.
