Overdue, Lost or Damaged Materials
It is the borrower’s responsibility to know the due date of the materials checked out and the fine rates for returning them late. The library sends out courtesy notices via e-mail the day before an item is due. Failure to receive a notice does not exempt borrowers from overdue fines, replacement, or processing charges.
|Books and Audio Visual Materials||$0.25 per day|
|Testing Materials & Testing USB Ports||$5.00 per day|
Individuals checking out materials from the Moustakas Johnson Library accept full responsibility for payment of fines for overdue materials. Individuals who have outstanding fines exceeding the maximum allowed or who have lost items on their accounts may have their borrowing privileges suspended. A hold will be place on the student’s academic record until fees/fines are paid. Privileges are reinstated only after all materials have been returned and all fines have been paid in full.
All circulating privileges are suspended when library fines for books and/or audio-visual materials reach $25.00 or $50.00 for testing materials.
Any book and/or audio-visual material not returned three weeks after its due date will be presumed lost. Borrowers will receive a bill for the replacement cost of the item, overdue fines, and a $10.00 processing fee. Replacement costs on items will vary.
The library will presume testing materials to be lost if not returned within one week after the due date. Borrowers will receive a bill for the replacement cost of the item, overdue fines, and a $10.00 processing fee. Replacement costs on items will vary.
Borrowers who return materials thought to be missing or lost, for which they have been billed, pay only the overdue fines upon return of the item(s). Borrowers who return an item after they have paid the bill will receive a refund for the replacement cost only. However, if a replacement has been ordered, no refund will be issued.
For damaged items, borrowers will receive a bill for the replacement cost of the item and a $10.00 processing fee. Replacement costs on items will vary.
