Alumni & Guests - Lost/Billed Items
Alumni and guests will be billed for the replacement cost of each item that they fail to return within 1 full loan period past the due date issued at the time of checkout. The Voyager online circulation system regards these items as Lost. If items are not returned to Babson Library, alumni and guests will be billed for replacement charges.
Billing for Replacement Charges
Replacement charges will reflect the actual cost incurred for replacing the Lost item(s) whenever possible, such as with recently published book titles and videos/DVDs. For the remaining Lost items, default charges will be used at the time of billing.
|Type of material||Default Rate|
|Theses, dissertations, out of print books, etc.||$50.00||Older videos/DVDs and other multimedia||$100.00|
Borrowing privileges will be suspended for any alumni or guests with outstanding replacement charges.
