When a library patron believes that a library fine and/or fee regarding the use of library materials is incorrect, s/he may initiate an appeal.
The library patron must fill out and submit the Library Patron Fines & Fees Appeal Form. When appropriate, copies of fine/fee payment or other appropriate documents must be included in the form to support an appeal.
The appeal will be reviewed by the Library Fines & Fees Appeals Committee. The Board will review the appeal and make a determination within 3 working days of the appeal submission. A student may request an expedited appeal if warranted. The Client Services Manager or Harmon Computer Commons Manager will contact the patron by email (using the email address submitted on the Library Patron Fines & Fees Appeal Form). The Board reserves the right to request more information and may contact the patron as needed. The burden of proof in the appeal process lies solely with the individual raising the appeal.
