Q. I'm an Online-Only user and have overdue material. How much do I owe?
To get the exact amount that you owe in overdue fines/fees, please contact the Access Services department at (334) 244-3647.
For a general idea of what is owed, check out the fine/fee breakdown below:
Overdue Material - items that were not returned or renewed by the Return Date but not yet marked as "lost" in the system.
- Books - $.25 per day, per item. Maximum of $25.00 per item. 4 day grace period.
- AV Material - $.25 per day, per item. Maximum $25.00 per item. No grace period.
- Recalled - $.50 per day, per item for recalled items. Maximum $25.00 per item. 7-day grace period after item is recalled. (A Recalled item is a request from the library for the item to be returned before the due date. Recalls are rare and typically occur because an instructor has requested that the item be placed on reserve.)
Lost Items and Replacement Fees - Items that have reached the maximum overdue fine (typically $25.00) will be marked as "lost".
Users will be billed for the replacement cost of the item plus a $25.00 processing fee. If the material is not returned, the user must pay the replacement costs and a $25.00 non-refundable processing fee.
Borrowers are responsible for all overdue fines/fees, and any replacement costs for lost or damaged materials.
