A courtesy reminder will be sent the day an item becomes overdue. Checkout privileges will be suspended upon accrual of unpaid fines. Failure to receive an overdue or fine notice will not be considered cause for canceling a fine.
Lost or misplaced materials should be reported promptly to the library. Fines will not continue to be charged once the loss is reported. Both the library and the borrower should do a thorough search for the book.
The lost material fee will be charged if the book has not been found in two weeks. The fee is the replacement cost of the book (according to current Amazon.com listing) plus a processing fee of $15 ($35 for GIL Express books) plus the overdue fine. Refunds cannot be made for any lost and paid materials which are subsequently located and returned.
Residents of the Augusta-Richmond County area who are 18 years or older may obtain a Community User card at the Information Desk. Community Borrower memberships may be purchased in three month intervals for $10 per interval. The card entitles the user to check out up to a total of five (5) items from the University Libraries. Users must agree to conform to the rules and regulations of the library.
Community User library privileges do not include interlibrary loan, access to campus computer labs or the GALILEO password. Community users may access information resources on the Internet in the Reference Room without a user card. Computer use is limited to one sign in per day for a maximum of two hour session.
Please see the Community User Borrowers policy for a complete outline of the Community Borrower privileges.
