For more detailed information, see the circulation staff.


Only the replacement fee is refundable if the book is returned in good condition and within a one-year of payment date.


Reciprocal overdue fees will be charged: $.15 cents per book per day (maximum $10.00 per book). Fees for lost or unreturned overdue books will be charged per CSU fee schedule; i.e. replacement cost of book, a processing fee, and accrued overdue fine(s).

The home campus will be notified and held responsible for its delinquent patrons. Holds may be placed on students' records, or pay checks may be withheld as the institution sees fit, as well as a collection agency being notified.


In an attempt to limit unauthorized use of library materials, library personnel will record the name and identification number of anyone attempting to leave the library without properly checking out materials.
