In general there are no borrowing fees for the user. The Baylor Libraries subsidize all user requests up to $25 per request, with no limit per user. If the cost for Baylor to acquire the desired resource exceeds $25, however, the client (or, with departmental approval, the faculty member's department) is expected to help cover the cost of the excess amount. ILL will only acquire an item with charges after authorization from the client.
Dissertations: If not available through interlibrary loan, dissertations may be purchased through a vendor. The client is expected to pay the full cost of this service and will own the document upon arrival.
Overdues: Fines accrue at $1 per day. After 21 days overdue, the item is considered lost and the client will receive a bill for replacement. The minimum fee once the replacement bill is sent is a $30 non-refundable service fee.
Damaged Items: Each client is responsible for all ILL items in his/her possession. If an item is lost or damaged, the lending library reserves the right to invoice us for the repair or replacement costs. The amount billed will vary and may be passed directly to the client for payment.
