If Your Privileges Are Blocked
The library charges fines for items returned late and replacement and processing fees for lost materials. An item that becomes more than 45 days overdue will be processed and billed as an unreturned item. You may pay your fines at the Circulation desk during hours when the library is open or request to have your fines transferred to your student UM Pay account. For currently enrolled students, unpaid fines may be transferred to UM Pay accounts automatically if they remain unpaid for more than 30 days. For more information about payment of library fines, see Paying Fines and Fees.
If a UMD student accumulates more than $10 in overdue fines, his or her borrowing privileges will be blocked.
Courtesy Card users will also be blocked if they accrue more than $10 in unpaid fines.
Faculty are not fined for late items but may be blocked if bills for lost items exceed $250.
Unpaid library fines may result in a hold being placed on a student's academic record. To reinstate privileges or to have a hold released, see a Circulation staff member or call 218-726-6120.
