Borrowing privileges (including checking out, renewing, and placing holds) will be suspended under any one of the following circumstances:
- A student, faculty or staff member owes over $10.00.
- An external borrower has any unpaid fines or replacement charges outstanding.
- A patron is delinquent in the return of Interlibrary Loan materials.
Library borrowing privileges may also be suspended for failing to follow Library Regulations. For example:
- Removal of material from the library without respecting proper borrowing procedures.
- Mutilation or destruction of library materials.
- Willful misplacement of library materials.
- Marking or underlining library materials.
In these cases, at the discretion of the University Librarian privileges may be reinstated after a fee of $50.00 has been imposed and paid.
Library Services Desk staff make every attempt to be fair. Overdue fines or replacement charges may be appealed, in writing, to progressively higher levels:
- Appeal Stage 1: Head of Access Services via the Fine Appeal Form
- Appeal Stage 2: University Librarian
- Appeal Stage 3: Senate Library Committee
The decision of the Senate Library Committee is final.
