Notices and Bills

These notices are sent to you by email or mail when a situation exists that relates to your use of our materials:

 

​Type ​Reason
​Awaiting Pick-Up ​Pick-up an item you requested at the circulation desk
​Courtesy ​Sent 7 days prior to the due date
​Overdue* ​An item you borrowed was not back by the due date
​Recall ​You must return a book you have borrowed
​Overdue recall ​You did not return the recalled item by the due date
​Statement ​You are being billed for a lost item
​Fine** ​You have a monetary fine for keeping an item too long
​In Transit ​A CTW item you requested is on its way to our library
​Cancellation ​An item you requested could not be provided

 

*This notice is sent on the day the item is overdue, and then weekly.  Borrowing privileges are suspended until the items are returned.

**Fine obligations for Wesleyan or Connecticut College library materials are handled independently by those libraries.

Appeals

Once an overdue notice has been issued, a borrower has 14 days to make an appeal if they feel that there it is a mistake.  The Library will search for any item claimed returned.  If the item is found, the borrower’s record will be cleared.  But the Library reserves the right to bill the user for items not found. 

More than 3 “claims returned” items in one semester will result in a block to further borrowing
