Borrowing Policies for Government Documents Borrowers
Loans, Renewals, Fines ...
Items that are renewable will not renew if there are other holds or requests for the item; though usually possible, renewals cannot be guaranteed, so plan your research accordingly!
Fines can be paid at the Kent Campus Main Library Circulation Desk with cash, check, credit card, or FlashCash *. Credit card payments can also be made online by logging in to your KentLINK library account. Fines that have been invoiced – submitted to the Bursar's Office – are payable through the Bursar's Office or at the library. Fines that have not been invoiced may be submitted to the Bursar's Office upon request, in person, at the Circulation Desk; fines submitted to the Bursar's Office by request will not clear from a patron's library record until they are paid.
* A cash balance that can be added to your FlashCard – food plan balances do not apply.
A fine will not be assessed for items returned (or renewed, when applicable) within their grace period. If an item is returned after the grace period, the fine will accrue from the most recent due date (not the end of the grace period), from patron's record, for the entire period the item is overdue. 2-hour Reserve and Periodicals have a ten (10) minute grace period. If the item is returned after the grace period, the fine will accrue from the most recent time due (not the end of the grace period) for the entire period the item is overdue.
