Suspension of services
When the total unpaid fines are equal to or in excess of $5 ($20 for faculty), the user's library borrowing, renewing and Interlibrary Loans privileges will be suspended.
Bill notices sent when maximum fine is reached
Once an overdue item accumulates the maximum fine, the item is declared lost and a bill notice is mailed to the borrower.
An item is considered lost when it is not returned within twenty (20) days following the item's due date, or when reported lost by the borrower. Users will be required to pay the following charges for each item declared lost:
- the outstanding fine to a maximum of $20, non-refundable
- the replacement cost of the lost item
- a non-refundable processing fee of $20
- Replacement copies purchased by patrons will not be accepted
Except for reserve material and equipment, the purchase price may be waived or refunded if the item is returned within three (3) months of billing.
