Default Replacement Values for Library Material

Submitted by Elin Waagen

The cost of replacing library materials has gone up.
After careful consideration and collaboration between Collections Management and Circulation Services, we have updated default replacement values to match the increased cost of replacing lost or damaged library materials.
Please note that effective March 1, 2009, the following changes will be in effect:
Books (including ILL and NEXpress), Music scores, Gov Docs – $100
Media – $40
Browsing Collection Books – $30
Equipment – $25-$2000, depending on the item
Default replacement values include a processing fee of $20
