Q. What if I keep an item to long? What is the overdue policy?
You are responsible for all items borrowed from the Texas Tech University Libraries. Make sure you return or renew check-out items by due dates. You may not be able to borrow items from the Libraries once you have overdue item(s) in your Library account.
Loan periods vary depending on item categories and your status at TTU. Please read Loan Periods for more details. You can always find due dates of check-out items in your Library account. Remember to sign in to your account in the upper right corner.
This policy is applicable to all Library check-out items EXCEPT for the Document Delivery item with a cover slip. Please contact the Document Delivery Department at (806)742-2239 or firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
Overdue Reminder & Notices
An email reminder is sent to you a week before the due date. The reminder lists the title, call number, loan date, and due date of each item which is going to be overdue. Make arrangements for a renewal or a return once this reminder is received.
If you fail to renew or return items before due date, an overdue notice is sent to you by email two business days after the due date. This notice lists the title, call number, loan date, and due date of each overdue item. Make arrangements for a renewal or a return once this notice is received.
The Libraries is NOT responsible for notifying you that materials are overdue. Reminders and overdue notices are sent as a courtesy. Failure to receive reminders or overdue notices does not excuse you from the responsibility of returning or renewing items on time to avoid penalties.
Be kindly reminded that you keep your contact information up-to-date.
