*Academic Term Loan: For items checked out/renewed in the Summer and Fall terms, the due date will be set to January 31st of the following year. For items checked out/renewed in the Spring term, the due date will be set to June 1st of the same year. 

 

Recalls 

Library staff may occasionally need to recall items for administrative purposes. A recall will shorten your loan period and a notice will be sent to notify you of the adjustment to your due date. Failure to comply with a recall may result in fines or a suspension of library privileges.

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.

Lost Item Charges

A $30.00 Lost Item Processing Fee will also apply for each Lost item.
