Where can I pay my fines and fees?


Library bills must be paid directly to the Libraries; they are not added to your account with Student Financial Services.

When library charges are incurred, we send you an email message detailing the charges. The message also provides payment instructions. Borrowers are responsible for their fines even if they do not receive an email.

You can make payments at the Library Information Office by check, Visa, or MasterCard. Lost/missing fees for Barnard books must be paid at the Circulation Desk in the Barnard Library.

If you would like to learn what your outstanding balance is, please contact the Library Information Office (LIO) by phone or by sending email to lio@columbia.edu. Students, faculty and staff with active borrowing records may also check on their outstanding balance by clicking on the My Library Account link in CLIO, the online catalog.
