Faculty and staff are also welcome to borrow our materials under these same guidelines with the exception of TERM LOANS for books from the NWP collection.

Late Fees: Late fees are charged only on cameras and other reserve items. (Please be aware that your account will show if your borrowed items are overdue, and the corresponding late fees, but these fees will be waved when the items are returned to the Learning Commons.)

Lost Book Fees / Financial Hold: Books and other items need to be returned or be renewed by the start of exams in each semester to avoid being charged for them ($150.00 per item in most cases). In case outstanding items are not returned or renewed by the end of the semester, users will be placed on Financial Hold, whereby they either pay the lost book fees or return the items so that they can register for further classes and receive their final marks. If the outstanding items are returned to the Learning Commons, users will be removed from Financial Hold and will not need to pay the lost book fees.

What is Interlibrary Loan?
