Books that are needed for Reserve are subject to immediate recall. Holds and recalls may be placed on books online or at the Music Library Service Desk.

Fines and Lost Books

Fines are assessed on overdue scores at $0.25 per day per score, or $2.00 per day per media item. There is no grace period. The system will charge overdue fines beginning the first day the book is overdue, but will not generate a bill for a fine that is less than $1.00.

When a book is overdue more than 28 days, it will be declared lost and you will be charged the replacement cost of the books plus a nonrefundable $35.00 processing fee. If the book is returned before it it is reordered, only the replacement cost will be refunded.

Students with outstanding charges or overdue materials will lose their library privileges and will be placed on "STOP" with the Registrar's Office. Grades, diplomas, or tanscripts will not be released and you will not be able to register for classes.
