Library Policies

Lost Items

The lost item policy pertains to everyone who borrows items from Plough library, including faculty, staff, students, alumni, courtesy, and consortia. Borrowers are responsible for returning all materials borrowed, in the condition in which it was checked out and in a timely manner.

Items that are not returned in proper condition and timely manner result in a suspension of borrowing privileges as well as a library hold on the student’s account at the registrar’s office. This hold may prevent future registration and/or receipt of diploma and/or transcript.

Items are designated “lost” 61 days after their due date. At that time, a lost item fee of $50 and lost item processing fee of $15 is charged for each item. If the item is returned, the lost item fee and processing fee will be removed and an overdue fee will be charged.

On rare occasions the patron may provide a replacement copy of the item at the discretion of the Acquisitions/Public Services Librarian or the Library Director. This must be preapproved by the Acquisitions Librarian or the Library Director.

Lost Item Refund Policy

If a patron returns an item that had been both declared lost and paid for, the library will refund the lost item fee. The lost item processing fee is non-refundable. The patron must have both item and receipt showing the lost item had been paid for. The receipt is required for a refund.
