The library's service desk has several items available to borrow for in-library use only. Time limits are set to 1, 3, or 6 hours and vary by item.
Borrowers are responsible for monitoring their own accounts for fees and can do so directly by signing into Bearcat Search. To avoid fees, borrowers should keep close track of due dates and be certain to have a current address on file with the library and the Registrar's Office, so that notices can be delivered promptly. Failure to receive notices is not sufficient grounds for cancelling library charges.
A registration hold will be placed on all outstanding library accounts. This will prevent the registration of and withdrawal from any classes, as well as prevent any transcripts or diplomas from being issued, until all fees are paid in full.
Accumulation of long-overdue items will result in suspension of borrowing privileges until the patron's record is cleared.
All borrowers are subject to a $100 minimum lost material fee assessed for all items not returned. The fee includes cost of material and physical processing. If the replacement cost is more than the minimum, the borrower may have to pay a higher fee.
Refunds for replacement fees will only be issued within thirty (30) days of the original payment if lost materials are found.
