What if I lose or damage my ILL item?
If you should lose or damage your ILL item, you are responsible for the fee assessed by the lending library. The Inter-library Loan Office will contact the lending library, receive a bill and inform you of the charges. Failure to pay these charges will result in your being unable to continue to use your library card until the obligation is satisfied.
