Loan Policies

It is the responsibility of every borrower to return library materials by the due date, to respond to Library notices, and to keep the Library informed of a current address. A notice sent by the Library to the address on file will be deemed to have been received by the borrower. The due date on the emailed receipt  provided when you borrow items is the official due date. Failure to do will result in overdue fines.

Non-payment of any account may result in the referral of an outstanding account to the University of Windsor's Department of Finance for further measures. Leddy Library reserves the right to withhold or withdraw borrowing privileges at any time.
