Lost or Damaged Materials
Lost or damaged library materials should be reported promptly to the circulation department. You are responsible for repair or replacement costs for damaged library books. Replacement charges for lost or damaged materials must be paid prior to registration for the next semester. You may use the Hillcard, cash or check to pay replacement charges. All lost materials will be billed at a cost of $70.00 per item, regardless of material. However, the library reserves the right to adjust charges upward if the value of the material exceeds $70.00. This replacement fee covers the cost of the book and processing charges. The library will refund a replacement fee if the item is found and returned in good condition, within a reasonable amount of time (usually 30 days). The processing fee is not refundable. Faculty members are also responsible for replacing any lost/damaged materials.
