Overdue, lost items or failure to return a recalled item are subject to Library and/or University sanctions.
Fines for overdue items are incurred daily, including weekends and holidays. There is no grace period.
An overdue item that has incurred at least $10.00 in overdue fines is considered lost. A lost item incurs the following charges:
Both the $10 overdue fine and $10 processing fee must be paid even after the item is returned. If an item is returned in damaged condition, the same replacement charges will apply. Failure to pay financial obligations may result in one or all of the following: library borrowing privileges withheld, referral for tax refund setoff, submission to collection agency, the right to register for classes withheld, non-issuance of diplomas and transcripts, or other appropriate sanctions.
Library fines and fees incurred at any UH System library may be paid at the Law Library between 8:30 a.m. – 8:30 p.m (during the academic semesters) and 8:30 a.m. - 4:30 p.m. (during the summer and winter break hours). Please bring student I.D. and exact change only.
Conversely, any Law Library fine and fee may be paid at any UH System library or at the Business Office located on the first floor of Hamilton Library. Hamilton Library allows fines and fees to be paid via phone with a credit card during regular business hours by calling the Business Office at 956-7203.
Anyone owing $10.00 or more in fines is blocked from borrowing library materials. Because Voyager is a shared database in the UH System of libraries, anyone blocked from borrowing at any UH System library will also be blocked at all other libraries, including the Law Library.

Renew items before their due date.
Items may be renewed online.
If you are blocked from renewing an item, please return the item to the library. Circumstances that block an item renewal include:
Renewals depend on the kind of material, the collection from which the item was borrowed and the borrower's privileges.
All borrowed items are subject to recall at any time by the library for use by other patrons. Fines for overdue recalled books are $0.50 per item per day, beginning with the new due date.
By accessing your own Library account, you may check the due dates of items you have borrowed, any fines owed, and the status of any books you have requested to see if they are available for pickup. Login to the MY ACCOUNT function in Primo and sign in using your UH log in credentials.
