You are responsible for all material checked out on your library account. You will be fined if material is overdue. Fines are paid through your secure UCR Library Account portal.

Beginning in January 2020, the library will adopt a new maximum cumulative fine for all reserve and recall fines. 

Library fees

General material
After 21 days, you are billed a $100 replacement fee for each overdue item. Additionally,  your library privileges are suspended until your bill is settled.

Interlibrary loan material
Replacement fees for interlibrary loan material are the same as general material (see above). Questions or concerns should be directed to the Interlibrary Loan Unit.

Recalled material
Recalled status is when another user requests the item you have checked out. You will receive notice of this. Fines of $2 a day begin accruing one day after the adjusted due date.  

Course reserves and other hourly material 
Fines of $10 for any portion of each hour overdue begin accruing after the due time.

Laptops
Fines of $10 for any portion of each hour overdue, with a maximum $2,000 fee for a lost laptop. 

Payments and account blocks

Library fees are payable through your secure UCR Library Account portal. 

Borrowing privileges will be suspended for cardholders with fees totaling $20 or more, or with balances outstanding for 30 days or more.

Appeal your bills

All appeals must be submitted online. 

Appeal requests will only be considered for unpaid fines and fees.  Appeal requests for previously paid fines and fees will not be considered and will be denied.

You are responsible for overdue materials even if you do not receive a notice.

Damaged items

You may be charged for materials returned in a damaged condition. The minimum charge for a damaged item is $15. If the item cannot be repaired, replacement fees will be assessed.

Lost or stolen material

Report lost or stolen items immediately to the library location where you checked the item out. Cases will be evaluated on an individual basis to determine fees.
