How can I clear an overdue item?

If an item is more than 42 days overdue, you will be charged a replacement fee plus $10 for processing. The replacement fee is refunded if you return the item within one year.

Overdue fines for Course Reserves are 50 per hour for 2- and 4-hour items, and $1 per day for 3- and 7-day items. If course reserves are not returned, you will be charged the overdue fine, a lost item fee, and a non-refundable processing fee. 

The Library may suspend your borrowing privileges if you have overdue items or fines. We can also block registration and hold university records. In addition to cash, we accept the following forms of payment:
