Maximum Fines

The maximum fine for any item is the replacement cost of that item. Average replacement costs for different formats have been set for items not having an identifiable replacement cost.

Service Charge

The processing fee or service charge is $5.00 per item for lost or damaged materials. This fee is not refunded if the item is recovered: only the replacement cost is refunded. The $5.00 service fee applies to each lost item.
