The Library will bill its users who have lost or damaged materials beyond repair at the standard replacement charge. In addition, each item will incur a non-refundable R165.00 handling fee.
Any unpaid handling/replacement costs will result in a restriction being placed on a user's account with the University library. Loan privileges will be withdrawn until all accounts have been settled. Unpaid accounts will be billed to the relevant students ‘account and related items will be declared lost on the library system. Items that have been declared lost and for which the replacement cost and handling fee have been paid, will not receive a refund if returned to the library at a later date.
