Borrowing: Late & Lost Items

What is the late fee?

Late Items

We no longer collect overdue late fees on books, CDs, DVDs, and music scores.

Overdue MacBooks, chargers, and other computer peripherals will accrue late charges at $5.00 per day.  These items may only be loaned to SU students, faculty and staff.

Lost Items

Materials more than four months overdue will be considered lost, and the user will be billed for replacement of the item. The cost of replacement will include a $20 processing fee, plus the actual cost of the item.

Payment of Lost Items

Library users may pay for lost items by cash and check. Students, faculty and staff are also able to pay by credit card.
