Borrowing materials

The circulating collection consists of books, government documents, maps, and microforms. There is no limit to the number of items you may check out from the general collection. Reference books, periodicals (bound or microform), and materials housed in the Area Research Center do not circulate.

Your barcoded UW-La Crosse ID card or community borrower card must be presented when checking out library materials. IDs are not transferable.

Borrowers are responsible for all materials checked out and are expected to return or renew borrowed items by the due date. A borrower's responsibility does not end until materials have been returned to and discharged by the library.

Late fees will be charged according to the chart below. Once an item is more than 28 days overdue, it is automatically declared LOST and a replacement fee will be charged. For lost items or materials too damaged to repair, the standard replacement fee is $100 per item. This standard replacement fee has been agreed upon and implemented by all UW System Libraries. If the item is found and returned, the replacement fee will be waived, but the late fees will remain. The option of bringing in a new replacement copy instead of paying the $100 fee may be available in some instances. Please contact the Circulation Desk at cirser@uwlax.edu or 608.785.8507 with questions or to arrange for payment or replacement of lost items. Any fines and fees on student accounts are forwarded to the Business Office for collection one week after Final Exams each semester.

Borrowers are expected to respond to all library notices and are responsible for notifying the library of address changes or corrections.
