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:
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 by contacting the Archer Library Help Desk. They can be paid in-person by debit or credit card. They can also be paid online by accessing "My Library Account". Library fines for Campion, Luther, and First Nations University of Canada are paid separately at each library. However, fines for all libraries can be paid online through accessing "My Library Account".
After 50 days, outstanding fines will be referred to the University of Regina Financial Services Office for collection. Financial Services will block registration, convocation and release of credits until outstanding fines have been paid.
