The University of Kansas Libraries
What kinds of library charges can be incurred?
The overdue fine for recalled items is $2.00/day/item with a maximum of $20.00/item.
Items checked out for two weeks or less incur overdue fines with rates ranging from $1.00/hour ($.25/minute for laptops) to $4.00/day with a maximum of $20.00/item/occurrence ($60.00 for laptops). The overdue charge for Interlibrary Loan items borrowed from another library is $1.00/day with a maximum of $20.00/item/occurrence.
Items are declared lost at 30 days overdue, and the borrower is billed for the replacement of the item. The cost of the item will vary, and a $20.00 processing fee is also applied. In addition, recalled items, ILL items, and all items checked out for two weeks or less will have the $20.00 overdue fine applied.
Once items have been declared lost, they cannot be renewed online and must be returned to the library.
After the library has finished processing the returned lost items, you will be able to check the items out again as long as they have not been recalled and you are a valid borrower with a library account balance of less than $80.00.
