Lost Materials / Replacement Charges

Once a book is overdue for 30 days replacement charges will be calculated and added to your account.

Please report lost materials to the Library Services Desk promptly.

Replacement charges are consistent among all OMNI library partners. All items declared lost will incur the following charges:

  • $125 default replacement charge
  • $25 non-refundable administrative charge

For materials borrowed by a Carleton patron from Omni libraries, the collection of fines and charges is the responsibility of the patron's home institution.

Damaged Materials

With the exception of regular wear and tear, damaged library material should be reported to the Library.Services@carleton.ca at the point of check out.

If an item is returned in damaged condition, you will be charged either the cost of repairs or actual cost of replacement.
