Policies and procedures

Availability:
All lockers are available on a first-come, first-serve basis. You may request to use a locker at the Library Service Desk at the following times: Monday through Friday, 8 am to 9 pm; Saturdays, 10 am to 5 pm; and Sundays, 1 pm to 9 pm. Requesting a specific locker or study table is only allowed under special circumstances.

Keys and locks:
The storage lockers are secured with a key lock. Padlocks or personal locks of any type are not permitted. If padlocks or personal locks are used, they will be cut off and your locker privileges will be withdrawn.

Fines and fees:
Overdue fines for checked-out keys are $1 per day up to a maximum of $50. A replacement fee of $50 will be assessed for any key not returned. A key is considered “lost” if a library staff member is required to open the locker.

Conditions of use:
Do not store food or drink inside lockers. Do not post notices on study tables or lockers. Do not cover the locker vents in any way. Violation of these conditions will result in the loss of locker privileges.

Personal items, such as laptops, may be stored in the lockers. Please note, however, that the Library and the University assume no responsibility for personal items that are lost or stolen while stored in the lockers.

Storage of library materials:
All library materials kept in the lockers must be checked out by the user. Library staff routinely check the lockers to verify that the library materials are properly checked out. If a locker is discovered to contain library materials not properly checked out, they will be emptied and the user’s privileges will be revoked.

Clearing lockers:
Storage lockers must be cleared by the end of each checkout period. If the user fails to clear the locker of all materials by the 4th day after the due date, library staff will take the following actions:

  • Library materials will be removed, checked in, and returned to the shelves.
  • Personal items will be held until the 3rd day of the next semester, after which they will be disposed of.
  • The user will be billed for the key that wasn’t returned.

Please report any problems with the storage lockers or study tables to the Library Service Desk.
