LIS Circulation is announcing Overdue Penalty Points

Beginning November 5th, reserves, equipment, and inter-library loan items that are overdue will accrue Overdue Penalty Points. For hourly loans (reserves), the points will accrue at a rate of one point per hour overdue. For daily loans, one point per day overdue. Once a patron reaches three points, they will be blocked from borrowing ALL library materials for a period of one day. If they accumulate six points, they will be blocked for two days, and so on. We are doing this to ensure that these materials are available to our patrons as much as possible and that people are not preventing their fellow students from accessing materials by keeping them out past when they are due. More information can be found at go/penaltypoints.
