Lost Item Fees at TIU: After 30 days overdue an item is considered lost and your account will be billed a $25 Lost Item Processing fee, plus a $100 Lost Item Replacement fee. When the material is returned, these fees will be waived and you will only be liable for the overdue fines that have accumulated.
Patrons are responsible for materials they have checked out. If an item is truly lost, the items will billed to your student account on the following scale:
For items requested through I-Share, overdue fines are not assessed. However, once an item is determined to be Lost (30 days after the due date) Lost Item Replacement Fees are assessed, determined by the lending library.
For items requested through WorldShare overdue fines are not assessed. However, once an item is 3 weeks overdue it is considered Lost and will be billed $125, in addition to any lost/replacement fees assessed by the lending library. When the item is returned, all fines/fees will be waived.
All appeals must be submitted within 28 calendar days from the fine notice date. To submit an appeal, fill out the Rolfing Library Fines Appeal Form. The Fines Appeal Committee will answer all appeals within 3 business days. The decision made by the committee is final.
Decisions are based on a clear and concise statement provided by the patron, in addition to the patron's library record, previous appeals made by the patron, the total amount due on the account, and any other information that is relevant to the appeal. It is very important to be specific with details of the appeal.
All reasonable concerns related to library charges will be considered; however, the following are NOT considered reasons on which an appeal can be based:
To pay fines due to the Rolfing Library by credit card, please fill out this form. At this time, all credit card payments must be for at least $5.00.
To pay a fine for materials from I-Share libraries, please contact the lending school directly. You can find information about who to contact at each I-Share library here. You will want to contact the person in charge of Circulation or Patron Billing.
