Fines & Other Charges
Overdue Fine Schedules
In computing overdue fines, each day is counted regardless of whether the library is open. A borrower is not exempt from the penalties for overdue material if he/she does not receive an overdue reminder notice from the library. Materials are assumed lost if not returned 15 days after the due date and will be subject to lost material charges.
If a checked-out item is requested by another user or needed in the library, a recall notice is sent to the borrower, which establishes a new due date for the library item.
Only one overdue or recall notice is sent, and all notices are sent to the address in our circulation system. Overdue and recalled material not returned will be declared lost, and the borrower will be billed according to the charges for lost material.
Lost or Damaged Items
Please report immediately when library material is lost or damaged. Any item in these categories must be paid for at once or replaced by the borrower. A processing fee and accrued fines, if any, must also be paid according to the charges for lost or damaged material.
||You may be charged the actual replacement cost if the item costs more than $100.|
||If repair is not possible, the material is considered lost, and charges for lost material apply.|
|Replacement by the borrower||
||You may replace lost or damaged material with a copy acceptable to the library. If you intend to make the replacement, you must so advise the library. Submit your copy to the i-Desk manager for acceptance.|
Student borrowing privileges are blocked when library fines, fees, or bills reach $50. You need to pay the entire balance in order to unblock your account.
