Library blocks

Why you may be blocked

You will be blocked from borrowing, renewing or placing requests if you exceed any of the following limits:

  • One or more overdue requested items from any library.
  • $50 or more in fines.
  • Your Campus Card (ID) has a status of expired, lost or stolen.
  • You have reached the maximum number of items you are allowed to borrow.

Your number of loans is calculated across all libraries from which items are borrowed including Interlibrary Loan items and equipment.

How to remove your block

  • Return overdue items. If you cannot find them, report them missing to the Library you borrowed them from.
  • Return some of your items on loan to get under your borrowing limit.
  • Pay your outstanding fines and fees.
  • Use the most recent Campus Card (ID) which has been issued to you.
