Reserve Fine Policies

Fines: Fines for overdue reserve materials are $.60 per hour for "Library Only" items with a maximum fine of $10.00 per item per day. Materials that are checked out of the library (1-day, 3-days, or 7-days) are assessed a $.50 per day per item fine for each day they are late. Please see the various checkout periods below. 

Recalls or Holds: We will recall books for an instructor to put on reserve for his/her classes. However, due to high demand, reserve items cannot be recalled or placed on hold.
