I am evil....sort of
Let me explain. I work at an academic library. The nursing program is one of our biggest draws, and thus, we have a lot of nursing books in our collection, many of them can used as textbooks or supplemental texts. Mostly, on this campus they are supplemental to the assigned textbooks that our students buy. That said, they get a lot of use from our students. Unfortunately, they get a lot of use from students who attend other schools. It's the "not our students" that are the problem. They put a great deal of extra wear and tear on those books. We've multiple instances of where the "not our students" have torn pages out of the books or intentionally misfiled them (so that one the person who misfiled them can find them). Not to mention just plain stealing them. We have a share program where students from other universities can get a share card to check out materials, but we've had a rash of share card holders checking out books and never returning them. (Technically, the institution that gives them a share card is responsible for the cost, but there have been issues with that as well.) If our students take out books and do not return them or pay for them, we can hold up their graduation, so at least with our own students a resolution is pretty easy to enforce.
So what did I do? Well, I went through the nursing books upstairs and pulled off the most recent editions of nursing texts or other books that are in high demand based on our curriculum, primarily books with a 2012 date or more recent. I even pulled resume books for medical professions (the ones that haven't been stolen that is). What I am going to do is put all these books on reserve so that they can only be checked out by our students. If they leave the building, it will only be with our students. Non students can still use them, but only in the building and only if they leave their drivers license with circulation.
