FAQs for lost

What if I lose a book?

Patron must pay accumulated overdue fine, if any, to the date item was reported lost; current list price of the item as given in Books in Print; and processing fee of $25.00. Default replacement value of out-of-print books is $85.00.

In the event that materials paid for as lost are later found or returned, the Circulation Department will authorize a refund of the replacement fee and the processing fee, less any overdue fines incurred. Refund will be made by the Business Office upon receipt of Library authorization and sent to the patron by mail. This process usually takes 6-8 weeks.
