UST Libraries are changing the lending policy that governs how long you may borrow items from the circulating collection. On Monday, July 15, 2013 the fixed end-of-term due date is changing to a rolling due date of 120 days. We are pleased to make this change that ensures you and your colleagues will always have library materials for at least 4 months before needing to return or renew them. For more details about the change and its restrictions, please read the footnotes below*.
If you have any questions or concerns about this change, please contact us at IrelandLibrary@stthomas.edu.
* The library reserves the right to recall library materials when they are needed for course reserves. If there are no other users waiting for the item, you can renew the item for another 120 days. The overdue fine and lost book fee structure remains the same. Overdue fines do not accrue on a daily basis. Items are considered lost when they are not returned within a month. A charge of $65 per item is applied to your library account for lost materials. The library reserves the right to charge a higher fee when the cost to replace an item exceeds $65. Loans from other collections (CLIC, MTLA, or ILL) have loan lengths of varying lengths; please check your online library account or contact library staff to confirm when your items are due.
