CD/DVD quarantine will be 72 hours upon return.  Materials will be wiped down prior to re-shelving.
 
Handling of Books:  When a book is requested it will be handled with gloves, quarantined for 24 - 72 hours and then sent to the requester.  Upon return, books will be quarantined for 72 hours before being returned to the shelves.
 
All materials will be handled with gloves at the Resource Center. Separate quarantine locations will be available for plastics and paper resources.
