*Elon faculty borrowing periods may differ.

There are no library late fines on any type of library material.

Borrowers with overdue items will receive one email courtesy notice, two email overdue notices, and then a final billing notice. At this point, an item is considered lost and borrowers will be charged $60 per item ($50 replacement cost, and a $10 non-refundable billing fee). If the item is returned within one semester, the borrower will receive a $50 credit on their Bursar account.

Reserves

Books and other items on reserve may be borrowed 2 hours, 4 hours, 1 day or 3 days, as determined by the professor.
