Email notices are a courtesy! Users are responsible for returning items on time. Users may inquire about charges at the 4th floor circulation desk.
Items are billed at 4 weeks overdue. The circulation system generates a $100 default bill. This charge is adjusted to reflect the actual cost to replace the overdue item plus a $25 processing fee. Gumberg Library will not accept replacement copies purchased by users, and cannot issue refunds for any payments.
If an item is less than eight weeks overdue, users may return the overdue item to the 4th floor circulation desk and pay any applicable overdue fees, or pay the replacement cost of the item. Payment may be made in-person or online.
If an item is more than eight weeks overdue, undergraduate and graduate students will be billed the replacement cost of the overdue item through Student Accounts.
Replacement funds may be used to either replace the lost item or, at the Gumberg Library’s discretion, to purchase other items which support the library’s mission. For more information please refer to the Gumberg Library’s Collection Development Policy.
Damaged items are evaluated on a case-by-case basis. If the library determines that the item is unusable and cannot be repaired, the user will be responsible for the replacement cost of the item plus a $25 processing fee.
