Q. I have lost a book I borrowed from the library.
Lost or Damaged Items
Lost items must be reported to the appropriate Circulation Services desk. Library materials are assumed lost and charges for the cost of replacing these materials are levied after 15 days following the due date for reserve loans, and 50 days for regular stack materials.
Borrowers losing or failing to return materials or returning materials in damaged condition are subject to a $60.00 charge to cover the cost of replacing the material, a $15.00 service charge, plus any outstanding fines.
In lieu of the $60.00 replacement charge, after consultation with library staff it is possible to purchase an acceptable replacement copy. The service charge is not refunded if a book billed for replacement is found and returned. All materials remain the property of the York University Libraries.
You are encouraged to report items with either missing pages and/or requiring repair. Regular stack materials charged to a patron are to be returned at the Circulation Service desk. Serials (journals and magazines) and books that are not charged out may be handed in at the Circulation or Information desks.
