Overdue, Damaged, & Lost Materials

Most books do not accrue daily overdue fines and can be renewed; however, high demand items will accrue overdue fines if returned late. While the Medical Sciences Library does not charge fines for overdue materials, accounts with overdue materials are subject to being blocked from library services.
