Policies

All circulating equipment may only be checked out by current university students, faculty, or staff. Due dates vary, but equipment must be returned to the circulation desk from which it was loaned. Equipment may not be returned in the book drop outside the library. Patrons accept responsibility for lost or damaged equipment and must replace lost/damaged equipment for its current market value.

Equipment that is 2 weeks overdue is considered long overdue, and will be billed additional fees for (1) the cost of replacing the item and (2) a non-refundable $15 processing fee (covers efforts to retrieve, search for, and replace item). If the equipment is returned, the replacement cost will be refunded, but the $15 processing fee and all daily/hourly overdue fees will still be assessed.

Additional policies may apply—ask at the Mortensen or Allen circulation desk for more information.
