  • Most items are declared lost 32 days after their due date. After 60 additional days, outstanding Archer Library lost charges on patron accounts will be transferred to Financial Services for collection. Financial Services will block registration, convocation, and release of credits until outstanding fines have been paid.
  • Lost items may be returned for refund of their lost fees prior to their transfer to Financial Services. However, lost fees will not be refunded after they have transferred to Financial Services. Patrons will be responsible for their payment through Financial Services after this has occurred.
  • Returns of items whose lost fees were previously paid for will not be accepted and their lost fees will not be refunded in any circumstance.
  • EXCEPTION: Reserve items are declared lost 3 days after their due date. After reserve items have been declared lost, the patron is responsible for payment of their associated lost fees. The lost fees will not be refunded in any circumstance even if the patron returns the lost reserve item.



Overdue fines encourage the timely return of library materials to ensure fair access to library resources for all patrons.

If you wish to appeal your fine, please contact the Archer Library Help Desk. The following reasons will not be accepted for disputing fines:

  • Ignorance of library policies
  • Forgetting due dates
  • Not renewing on time
  • Not receiving a courtesy or overdue notice
  • Inability to renew online
  • Borrowed the item for another person
  • Item returned late by another person
  • Not returning recalled items because you were away from campus
  • Library was closed

If your fines and lost charges reach $50.00 or more, you will be blocked from borrowing library materials.

If we have your email address, you will receive a courtesy notice 7 days before materials are due. An overdue notice will be emailed 1 day after the due date, to remind you to return or renew books before you receive a Fines and Fees notice listing amounts owed.

The Library does not accept purchased replacements of lost items.

Archer fines and lost fees are payable online by accessing "My Library Account". Library fines for Campion, Luther, and First Nations University of Canada are paid separately at each library or paid online through accessing "My Library Account".

For more information, contact the Archer Library Help Desk.
