When library materials become overdue, the library will send an overdue notice as a courtesy reminder.
A replacement fee will be charged for each item still checked out after the billing date (see chart for amounts). All replacement fees and overdue fines are charged to a student's My Stephens/PowerCampus account and will appear on the monthly statement.
Replacement fees for MOBIUS and Interlibrary Loan books are set by the loaning institution and are non-negotiable.
For reserve materials, the overdue notice will notify a borrower that if the item is not returned by the billing date (three days from receipt of notice) the borrower will be charged a non-refundable $10 overdue fine in addition to a replacement fee for each item. If the reserve material is returned by the billing date in good condition, only the overdue fine will be charged.
Borrowing materials from another academic library is a privilege, not a right. Borrowers must abide by the rules, guidelines and policies of the lending library. Abuse of this privilege may result in a library revoking your circulation privileges. Any transaction a borrower makes at another library is that borrower's responsibility. Borrowers requesting books via Interlibrary Loan are bound by the policies of the lending institution.
A current Stephens College ID card is needed to checkout items from the library.
It is an individual's responsibility to return materials in a timely fashion.
We encourage students not to check out materials for friends. Whomever the material is charged to is responsible for any fines.
If a longer loan period is needed, materials may be renewed. Books may be renewed through the Stephens Library Catalog by clicking on My Library Account and following the instructions.
Materials received though InterLibrary Loan may be renewed only upon consent of the lending library.
