What if I did not receive my notices for a book I checked out and now I'm being fined for it?


Notices are sent by e-mail and are a courtesy.  If you use notices as your indication to return or renew your books, you assume the risk of accruing overdue fines in the event that they are not received or noticed.

The University Libraries will not waive fines if you claim to not have received notices. You are responsible for returning or renewing your books by the due date(s), which are available by logging into the University of Minnesota Libraries website.
