Overdue Policy

  • When material is not returned by the date due, the patron's record is blocked and borrowing and ILL privileges are suspended.
  • A reminder that overdue material has not been returned is mailed to you one week after it became overdue.
  • If the item has not been returned, you will receive a bill for the full replacement and processing costs for each item overdue. If replace item has been ordered from publisher, the replacement cost will not be forgiven.

Book Renewal Policy
