The due date stamped in items currently checked out to you is your notice of when library material must be returned. The Libraries will send a courtesy notice before the item is due suggesting that you return or renew it, however, you are still responsible for any late fees or fines even if you did not receive a courtesy notice.
Please observe the due dates in the items, and note that dates may differ depending on the date the items are checked out. Also observe that items from different libraries may have different due dates. At any time, you may view "My Library Account" from CLIO to see the status of items checked out to you.
Fines for overdue material is $0.25 cents per day, per item. The maximum fine is $7.50 per item. The library charges a fine for every calendar day an item is overdue. Overdue fines for reserve material are higher: $1.00 per hour up to a $50.00 per item maximum. Fines for recalled items are $1.00 per day up to $30.00.
We will mail an overdue notice to you when items are 1, 8 and 15 days overdue. Items overdue by more than 45 days are considered lost and you will be charged, in addition to any accrued overdue fine, for its replacement and the processing charges incurred by the library to acquire the replacement. If you return an item for which you have been billed the replacement cost, please see the Circulation Supervisor to adjust the charges on your record associated with the item.
If your library fines and fees exceed $99.00, a hold will be placed against the issuance of your University transcript and diploma. If your fines and fees exceed $99.00, your borrowing privileges will also be suspended. To avoid library fines return or renew material on or before the due date.
Beginning June 1, 2007, the fee for lost materials will be $100 per item.* A hold will be placed on issuance of your transcript and diploma, and your library privileges will be suspended, until the fee is paid in full.
*The fee for rare or out-of-print materials may be greater than $100.
