Fees for lost or damaged items varies depending on the extent of the damage and the cost of the book. The replacement charge for lost items is $60 for all materials.
In most circumstances the library will accept a replacement copy of a lost or damaged book, journal, film, or video in lieu of the replacement cost. In that case, you will be charged a processing fee of $20. The replacement item must be an exact copy or an appropriate substitute (as determined by library staff) of the same author/title. Mass market paperbacks are not acceptable as replacement copies.
Note: All library fines and fees are transferred to the Student Accounts billing system on a nightly basis.
