Faculty and staff are not fined for overdue materials, but in some cases, fees may apply.
Late or Lost?
If items reach their end renewal date and are not returned within 30 days, you will be billed a replacement charge of $100 plus a processing fee of $15. If you return an item with a "lost" status, the replacement fee will be deducted from your bill, but the processing fee will still be owed. Items on short-term loan will be billed as lost even before they become 30 days overdue.
Faculty and staff will be billed for damaged library materials. The faculty or staff member is responsible for paying these fees. Library privileges may be blocked due to fines.
Blocked or Barred Privileges
You may be subject to the loss of borrowing privileges, as well as interlibrary loan privileges, in the following circumstances:
- if you have fees for non-returned items in excess of $9.99
- if four or more items become overdue
- if interlibrary loan items checked out to you become overdue, lost, or damaged
