Interloan materials belong to other libraries and the patron is responsible for the safe and timely return of these items. If a patron does not return Interloans, they will be required to pay the bill submitted by the lending library. If patron fails to do so, all borrowing privileges will be suspended until payment has been made. Chronic abuse of Interloan service (late returns, etc.) can result in patron’s borrowing privileges being temporarily or permanently suspended.
