Changes to billing for lost overdue items


Beginning August, 24, 2016, Library borrowers will be billed for the replacement cost of items that are not returned or renewed 14 days after the due date, except for items in high demand that cannot be renewed: after 2 days for reserve material, and after 10 days for items that have been recalled. (Previously, bills for replacement were sent to users after 40 days for overdue items and 21 days for recalled overdue items.)

Uniquely, on Wednesday, August 24, lost bills will be emailed to McGill Library borrowers for all items that have been overdue for 14 to 40 days and recalled items overdue between 10 and 21 days.

We apologize for any confusion. If you have any questions, feel free to ask us or learn more about borrowing from McGill Library.
