Lost and Damaged Items

You will be charged the replacement cost of the item plus a non-refundable processing fee. At Scarborough Memorial Library the fee is $10.00. If the lost or damaged item belongs to another ELIN consortium member library, you will need to clear your account balance at the other library. Overdue fines accumulate until the day the item is returned or reported lost. Before a student may register for a subsequent semester, or obtain a transcript, all overdue materials must be returned to the Library and all fines and charges paid.


There is a photocopier in the Library located near the Periodicals section for student use. Photocopies are currently 10 cents per page. Interlibrary Loans and Article Photocopy Requests Materials not owned by the Library may be obtained through Interlibrary Loan (ILL) services by contacting a Library Staff member. Policies concerning these materials are set by the lending library. Please return or renew books prior to the due date.
