Lost Items

Lost item charges will apply if materials become greater than 30 days overdue. Once paid, lost item replacement charges are refundable up to one year from the date of payment. The library reserves the right to replace a title in question with a different title as dictated by the needs of the curriculum and the collection. Unpaid accounts will be referred to the Bursar for collection.

In lieu of payment, a lost book can be replaced by the patron with a new copy of the same title, edition, binding, and ISBN number. The replacement must be in new or very good condition and must not contain any visible damage or marks of any kind. Any late fines that had accrued plus the non-refundable processing fee will be payable upon receipt and approval of the replacement copy.
