Reserve materials are subject to fines because these items are in high demand, require high turnaround and need to circulate to all persons enrolled in the specific course. 

If items are not renewed or returned by the due date, replacement costs will be issued for items that are at least 14 days overdue. The bill will include the replacement cost and a $15 non-refundable overdue fee per item. If items are returned to the Library within two months after a bill has been issued, a waiver of the replacement charge(s) may be requested but the non-refundable overdue fee(s) will not be waived.

If an item is damaged or lost, repair or replacement costs will be assessed in addition to the $15 non-refundable overdue fee. Please note that water damage cannot be repaired, and must be replaced.
