What if I checked out a book for a professor and now I'm being fined for it?


You are solely responsible for the use of your card.

If you borrowed an item for a professor and are now being fined for it, you are responsible for its return and for paying any associated overdue fines accrued.

You may have the professor take responsibility on your behalf.  The faculty member's claim should indicate that the book was checked out for the professor's use and that they are solely responsible for the overdue fines. The letter should be written on department letterhead, should include the book's title and author, and should be signed and dated. Professors may also request that the book be transferred to their own library account.
