Access and privileges

Suspended privileges

Borrowing privileges can be blocked for several reasons, including unpaid library bills, registration holds, invalid addresses, or failure to respond to a recall. Library access may also be suspended due to disruptive behavior. For more information see the Library Conduct Policy.

  • Student borrowing privileges are blocked when library fines, fees, or bills reach $50. You need to pay the entire balance in order to unblock your account.
  • Faculty borrowing privileges are blocked when library fines, fees, or bills reach $300. Overdue fines are forgiven when overdue materials are returned. Avoid suspension of privileges by renewing books online before they are due.

If your Campus Card or SUL Card expires, you won't be able to access libraries that require cards for entry. If you have questions about this, please contact the Campus ID Card Office (for Campus Cards) or Privileges (for SUL Cards).
