The ACU Library charges a minimum of $60.00 for each lost or damaged book or other item. Lost and damaged items are charged to your banner account between the 1st and the 6th of each month. An automated email system sends pre-overdue notices 3 days beforehand, 1 day, 7 days, 14 days and 21 days after the item is overdue. At 28 days after the first overdue notice, you will be emailed notifying that a minimum charge of a $60 will be applied to your banner account within 48 hours. If the item is returned before it is billed, all charges will be waived.
If the item is returned within 45 days after being billed, a $15 dollar processing fee is kept and you can be credited for the rest of the initial charge (with rare exceptions due to extenuating circumstances decided by staff). A credit is given if returning a book within the 45-day time frame from the first overdue notice.
Damage includes, but is not limited to, spilling liquids, ripping, tearing, mold, mildew, barcode tampering, and anything beyond normal wear and tear.
