Frequently Asked Questions
Why is billing necessary?
The Libraries has stewardship responsibility for large collections of state- and university-owned property. This property must be managed so that it is available for shared use by a large and diverse university constituency. The rules are designed to serve as an incentive for borrowers to return library materials in a timely manner, after a reasonable loan period, so that materials are properly accounted for and can be made available for other borrowers. Failure to return borrowed, state-owned materials must result in financial accountability for their replacement costs.
