Frequently Asked Questions

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


You are responsible for the use of your card. If you checked out a book for a professor and are now being fined for it, you are responsible for its return and for paying the overdue fines. However, you may also have the professor write us a letter on your behalf. The letter should indicate that the book was checked out for the professor's use and that he or she is 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 his or her own library account.
