Information on the policies and procedures of the University of Louisville Libraries

Bursar Blocking for Overdue Library Materials


The University Libraries policy is to place a Bursar Block on students with unpaid library charges.


All UofL libraries (except Law) will place an unpaid library charge indication on the Bursar system for any UofL student with unpaid library charges.

Placing and clearing Bursar Blocks will be done by designated individuals from each of the libraries. The removal of the Bursar Block will be restricted to personnel from the library that placed the Bursar Block.

Payments for lost library materials must be made at the library where the Bursar Block was initiated.
