At the beginning of the summer term the AUM Library’s policies were amended. The overdue fines remain at 25 cents per day for most items, with a 4 day grace period for books; however, the maximum fine per overdue item has been raised to 25 dollars.
In order to avoid ALL overdue fines: (1) please take note of the due date that is stamped on the date due slip with your item and return them on or before the date due. You may return items by bringing them to the circulation desk inside the Library or by dropping them in the outside return boxes when the Library is not open.
(2) Renew the items that you need for a longer time. You may renew items by bringing them to the circulation desk, or by renewing online through the Library Catalog. Items that are overdue may NOT be renewed online. If you would like someone to show you how to renew online, please come by the Reference Desk on the second floor and we will be happy to show you how.
