Change to library processes regarding lost books

Unitec library print books and other physical library items are resources provided for the use of all students and staff. Increasingly loaned items are not being returned.

To encourage the return of loaned items we will be shortening the time before the item is declared lost. Once the item is declared lost the borrower is liable for the cost of the item as a debt owing to Unitec. This debt will result in blocks to library services and may also block enrolment in Unitec courses and graduation.

If the book is returned the debt will be removed.

If the book is not returned the blocks will remain in place and we may pass the debt to a debt collection service.

Please contact libadmin@unitec.ac.nz if you have any queries about this change.
