You are responsible for all material you sign out. You will be charged for resources (books, DVDs, magazines, reserve items, etc.) that are damaged or lost. These charges will be attached to your student account.
Pick-up & Returns
All NEOS items can be picked up and returned to the NorQuest Library regardless of their home library location.
NorQuest Library provides access to a selection of course textbooks. Located at the circulation desk, they can be used in the library for a maxium of 2 hours.
After items have been signed out for two weeks, they can be RECALLED for use by others. If your book is recalled, you will have SEVEN DAYS from the date of email notification to return it to the library, regardless of the original due date of your item. If you plan to be out of town for an extended period, ensure that you either return library materials before you leave or leave them somewhere where a colleague or family member can return them for you.
Fines and Fees
You are responsible for fines and fees accumulated on resources you have borrowed from other NEOS libraries. NorQuest Library staff cannot waive the fines of other libraries.
If you have unpaid overdue fines or an overdue item, you can still borrow materials from the library until your overdue fines reach $50 (remember it is a dollar a day for each item at most NEOS libraries).
Borrowing privileges are suspended when unpaid fines exceed $50.00. Most libraries will not lend to students that have accumulated a $50 fine - remember, this could be 5 books each overdue by 10 days.
Individual items that are overdue for more than 31 days are considered lost. A flat fee is charged to your account for all lost materials. This amount will be adjusted to reflect the actual cost of the item upon payment. The library will waive all fines on return of the item unless the item is damaged.
A fine or fee placed on your student account displays as a negative service indicator on your account. A negative service indicator will result in the withholding of transcripts and future registration.
