Purpose: 

This procedure describes the billing structure for unreturned library materials as it applies to Lane employees.

Narrative: 

Overdue Items

Lane employees with overdue material will be sent notices via intercampus mail, or via email at their request.  Employees will not be charged overdue fines for materials borrowed from the Lane Library collection, but will be liable for any overdue fines accrued on items borrowed from other libraries, including those from the Orbis Cascade Alliance (Summit) collection.

Unreturned Items

Employees are not exempt from any fees attached by the lending library when reasonable efforts to retrieve overdue materials fail.  In such cases, accounts may be turned over to a collection agency.  Delinquent accounts will be subject to interest charges in addition to replacement and processing fees; returning the materials at that time may reduce, but may not eliminate, the amount owing.

For more information, please see the Library Circulation Overdues Policy Manual.
