  Overdue Fines
   
  Overdue fines will be charged when patron returnes or renewes library materials late. The amount of fine is calculated when material is returned. The patron has to pay the overdue fines at the time the book is returned at the Circulation Desk.
   
  Overdue fines are as follows:
   
 
  • For general collection:
     
    - Internal user = 5 Baht per day
    - External user = 10 Baht per day
   
   
 
  • For reserve collection:
   
    - 20 Baht per day
   
  Library Automation System is automatically blocked patrons who have accrued fines of 100 Baht. Patrons with blocked accounts will not be able to check out new books or renew books on loan until the fine is cleared.

Damaged Items
   
   
 
   
  If library materials on loan are damaged, patrons will be billed for the cost of repair. Patrons who return the items which are damaged by intentional misuse (including highlighting, underlining in pencil or ink, or use of adhesive notes) may be charged a fee depending on the severity of the damage. If the materials cannot be repaired, patrons will be billed for a replacement charge plus a fee of 200 Baht for processing for each item. If damage is noticed, patrons are requested to alert the Circulation staff.
