Browsing collection - $1.00/day
Periodicals - $1.00/day
Recalled items - $1.00/day from new due date

If an item is 30 days overdue, unpaid fines and replacement costs are transferred to University Accounts Receivable for collection. A $20.00 non-refundable processing fee is added for each transfer of charges to A/R. At this time, borrowing privileges are suspended.
Other libraries may also request that Lovejoy Library suspend borrower privileges for unreturned interlibrary loan materials and/or unpaid fines or fees.
