What is the ILL overdue policy?
► Having overdue ILL books will incur fines and block your ILL and Rice Library privileges. ► Overdue ILL notices are sent by email every Wednesday. Before the item is overdue, patrons receive a courtesy notice indicating its upcoming due date. ► The first overdue notice is sent when the item is 1-7 days overdue, and the second notice is sent when the item is 8-14 days overdue. At this point, a non-refundable $20.00 processing fee per overdue item is also added to the patron’s library account. ► Patron receives a letter containing the notice of fines/fees. ► All of the patron’s Rice Library privileges are blocked until the ILL item is returned or replaced and all associated fees cleared. ► In addition, the patron’s Banner account is blocked, denying registration privileges until the matter is resolved. ► If the patron does not return the item, the replacement fee is added to their library account, and subsequently receives another notice of fines/fees
