The library user is responsible for full payment of fines assessed on their account. There are three basic categories of fines: those for standard circulating materials, those for short-term loans, and those for equipment. All fines are charged per item. Materials and equipment receive a short-term loan status when in high demand and are subject to higher fines.

General Circulating Materials
  • 2-week, 4-week, Semester and Recalled items: 30 day grace period after due date. On the 31st day after due date fees of $150 per item are assessed.
