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.

Announcing non-refundable billing fees for library items

In an effort to get library materials back in a more timely fashion so that others can use them, LIS has put in place a non-refundable billing fee of $25 for items that are returned after the billing charges for non-returned items have been initiated. Items returned before the charges are moved to the college bill will not be billed. If an item is returned after it is transferred to the college bill, the replacement charge will be credited, minus the $25 billing fee. Note that if the item has already been replaced, you will be billed the full replacement charge. Please see the full library replacement and fine policy here. Please contact Library Circulation with any questions.
