The Library will send you reminder notices to your ACU email address when your loans are nearly due as well as overdue. They are sent as a courtesy. It is up to you to renew or return items on time to avoid paying fines.
If you have overdue items, including those from other ACU libraries or non-ACU libraries, or you have fines of $10 or more you will not be able to borrow, renew or place a hold.
Fines are charged at the following rates:
Type of Loan
50 cents per item per day
High demand (2 hour loans)
$1.00 per hour (or part thereof)
3 day loans and interlibrary loans
$2 per item per day
Fines are capped at $50 per item.
Loans Guidelines have more detailed information about fines, notices, recalls and suspensions.
Items out on loan may be recalled if another person places a hold on the item or it is needed for the High Demand collection.
This shortens the loan period already given - but you are guaranteed a minimum 7 day loan.
Recall notices will be sent to your ACU email. You can also check the due dates of your loans in My Library.
