*Exceptions may be made at the discretion of the Library Director or Interlibrary Loan Librarian.
Principia College Library patrons are responsible for:
Fines and fees may be paid with cash or check at the Circulation Desk. Alternately, fines and fees may be paid via the Principia Marketplace. Refunds are made when items are returned within six months of the original payment date and are in good condition. The $15 service fee is not refunded.
Exceptions to this policy may, on rare occasions, be made at the discretion of the Library Director in consultation with the Public Services Manager.
*Items not returned within 30 days of their due date are automatically marked as lost by the Voyager system. At that time the patron’s record will show the lost item charges ($50 per item) and service fees ($15 per item).
**This amount is reviewed periodically. The base price is determined by consulting the Bowker Annual as a guide to the average cost of an academic book in conjunction with reviewing best practices at other small college academic libraries. The service charge partially covers acquisition and processing costs.
Exceptions to these policies may be made for special Library sponsored events
The management of the library collection is governed by the Collection Management Policy.
