New Interlibrary Loan Late Fees and Fines

From the UH Manoa Library Interlibrary Loan Unit:

Effective January 11, 2010, to facilitate the prompt return of ILL loan materials, fees and fines are assessed at the following rates, per item:

  • Overdues: $.25 per day
  • Recalls: $.50 per day
  • Fines are assessed every day including weekends and holidays
  • An item is considered “lost” when the fine reaches $10
  • Lost charges include the replacement cost of an item, a $10 NON-REFUNDABLE processing fees, plus any processing fees imposed by the lending library, and accumulated overdue fines.

We appreciate your returning ILL loans in a timely manner. This allows us to keep a good borrowing relationship with the lending libraries. Overdue and lost books may result in the inability to borrow books from the lender in the future. Having our borrowing privileges suspended by other libraries affects everyone who uses ILL, including your fellow students, faculty, and staff. Mahalo for your consideration.

Highlights:

  • New! In the Voyager “My Account”, you will be able to see your checked out ILL items and due dates.
  • Convenience! You will be able to view all of your checked out items conveniently in one system (UHM, UH system, and ILL loans).
  • New! You will receive automated email notices for due date courtesy reminders, overdues, and recalls.
  • New! Fines and fees payments can be made at the Hamilton Library’s Business Office
  • Renewals/re-requesting must be done by contacting the ILL office staff directly by phone (956-8568) or via your ILLiad accounts. (ILL renewals cannot be done via Voyager.)

If there are any questions, please contact:
