Criss Library will be undergoing a limited remodel that will last through approximately Mid-November. Remodeling will occur on the 1st and 2nd floor. When all the noise is finished and the dust settled Criss Library will have three new spaces for patrons to enjoy. Archives & Special Collections will have an updated space on first floor. Second floor will be home to a New Classroom and the expanded Creative Production Lab. The library will be open during construction, so please pardon this temporary inconvenience.

    

O Pioneers! (Kindle or ePub) Willa Cather's first great novel, is a work in which triumph is inseparably entangled with tragedy, a story of people who do not claim a land so much as they submit to it and, in the process, become greater than they were. ...Or, Herman Melville's tale of corporate discontent, Bartleby, the Scrivener (Kindle or ePub), tells the story of a quiet, hardworking legal copyist who works in an office in the Wall Street area of New York City.  One day, Bartleby declines an assignment with the inscrutable "I would prefer not," the  utterance of this remark sets off a confounding set of actions and behavior, making the unsettling character of Bartleby one of Melville's most enigmatic and unforgettable creations.

Criss Library Fine Policy: Renewals, Returns, Fines

Can I renew my books?

Where do I return my books or Reserve/Media items?

How much are fines for late returns?

Books and Government Documents:

Group/Single Study Room Keys, Remote Controls, computer peripherals (mice, headphones, etc.):

Graduate Carrel Keys:

Laptops:

Media items (CDs, DVDs, videos and Playaways):

Media Equipment (Camcorders, Camcorder Accessories, Digital Cameras, Digital Audio Recorders, tripods):

Kindles:

Reserve items (2 or 4 hour checkout):

Reserve items (1, 3 or 7 day checkout):

Damaged items: Any item returned with damage will be assessed a fee.

Recalled items: A $4 recall fine, in addition to any other charges, is assessed if the item is not returned by the due date on the Recall notice.

All Library items:

If an item is overdue 6 months or more, the patron must reimburse the library for the cost of the item plus any fines and billing fees, even if the patron is able to return the item, as the item has been considered permanently lost and has been removed from the collection and/or reordered.

Do you notify me if my items are overdue?

As a courtesy the library sends out an electronic notification when an item is 7 days overdue and 14 days overdue. After an item is 28 days overdue, you will be mailed a bill for the replacement cost and processing fee. Failure to receive electronic notification does not excuse a patron from fines.

Will I still owe a fine if I return a billed or fined item?

Yes. When a billed item is returned, fines and billing fees, which will not exceed $15 per item, must be paid before Library privileges can be restored or registration holds can be lifted.

What if I pay for a lost item and then find it?

Generally, the library orders and replaces lost items within 30 days after they have been declared lost on a library user’s account.  You are eligible for a refund if you have returned the lost item within 30 days of the replacement billing date and the item has not been damaged.  After this time period, or if the item is determined to be damaged, you are not eligible for a refund.
