Hey! Why is my book in "Quarantine?"

The UNH Law Library, following the best practices defined by the American Library Association and the Northeast Document Conservatory, which states that "time is the best disinfectant."  The Conservatory recommends, "a minimum 3-day quarantine of the following collection items: plain paper pages inside a book, paperback and hardback book covers, DVD cases, archival folders, and plastic book coverings." 

So, if a book is returned on the 10th of the month, it will be "in quarantine" the 11th, 12th, and 13th.  On the 14th, it can be checked out again.
