Overdue and Fines
Faculty and administrators do not accumulate overdue fines. However, items not returned 30 days after the due date will result in replacement costs and a $10 Lost Item Processing Fine for each long overdue item assessed to your library account. You will also be blocked from checking out additional material from the library until long overdue items are returned or replacement charges are paid.
The Lost Item Processing Fine of $10 will be billed to Student Accounts immediately. Replacement costs will be waived if items are returned within 60 days past the due date.
After 60 days overdue, replacement costs for the items are assessed at Student Accounts. You will receive notice of outstanding charges from Student Accounts at this point forward. All blocks and charges associated with this bill are removed, and you may check out items again.
Overdue notices for short-term loans—items that circulated for 7 days or less—will vary by the length of the loan.
If you return the item before the bill has been paid at Student Accounts, it is at the library director’s discretion to issue a credit to student accounts. No refunds will be issued if the item is returned after payment has already been made to Student Accounts—no exceptions.
If you leave employment at Arkansas Tech University, any outstanding library charges may be deducted from your final paycheck.
Email notifications will be the primary way the library will communicate overdue notices. You may also sign-in to your library account
to check outstanding loans and due dates.
