The Law Library has not been charging overdue fines for late materials. However, this is changing effective January 29th. During both the Summer and Fall semesters, there has been a problem with patrons keeping heavy demand items well past their due dates. This has placed other patrons at a disadvantage, especially in regards to course reserve material and study aids.
Therefore, library will begin to charge overdue fines on a daily basis for regular circulating materials and an hourly basis for reserve materials. Also, when a reserve item is overdue for 2 or more days, we will bill the patron for the cost of replacement plus a $40 processing fee. This will allow us to replace the material immediately to provide access to other patrons.
