If items are overdue any overdue fines must be paid before renewing.
Please note: Some items, particularly ERC items, Group Study Room keys, and the One Button Studio key, accrue fines at a higher hourly rate and therefore a higher daily accrual rate and have higher replacement costs. All BSU students who accumulate $10 or more in fines or fees will have their library privileges suspended. Transcript and/or registration holds will be placed when students accumulate $20 or more in fines or fees. Community library users incurring the same level of fines will have their borrowing privileges suspended until their accounts are settled.
Library materials returned in good condition within 30 days after replacement fees are paid will be refunded less any applicable overdue fines. There are no refunds after 30 days of payment for lost items. Items damaged beyond repair will be discarded. Damaged items will not be returned to students. The library does not accept replacement copies for lost items, only payment.
A library patron may request a HOLD on material on loan to another patron either in person at the Circulation desk, or by calling 508.531.1392 or e-mailing the Circulation department.
A patron may request that a TRACE be placed on material designated as available in the online catalog but not found in the stacks.
Found items may be turned in to the Circulation Department desk. Items considered a potential health risk will be discarded. Articles of clothing will be kept for 30 days and, if not claimed, discarded or donated to charity. All print or paper items will be recycled or destroyed after 30 days. The owners of cell phones, laptops, wallets and other valuable items will be contacted if the owner's name is apparent. After 30 days, all lost items such as cell phones, wallets, valuable electronics, and BSU Connect Cards will be turned in to BSU Campus Police.
