Fines for overdue materials are $0.25 per day/per item. A maximum fine is set per item (usually $15) and does not exceed the total cost of the item. Additional materials may not be checked out until fines are settled. Students who have outstanding library materials will have their account locked until the items are returned and any associated fines are paid.
Items that are not returned or renewed will be assumed to be lost and the borrower will be billed for their replacement. For lost materials borrowers are charged for the replacement cost of the item ($50.00 per item, on average) plus a processing fee ($15.00). The bill for a lost item may be adjusted if the actual cost of replacement can be determined.
The borrower is responsible for materials returned in a damaged condition. Charges for damaged materials may include either repair or replacement costs.
