*Please note: There is no grace period and no maximum fee for overdue Reserve items.

The system will charge overdue fees beginning the first day the book is overdue -- there is NO grace period.

Overdue fees continue to accrue on holidays and other days when the library is closed. Books that are returned to a book drop when the library is closed will be checked in, backdated to the last day when the library was open. Books are never due on a day that the library is closed.

All patrons who fail to respond to a recall notice, including faculty, must pay recall fees. Library privileges will be suspended until the recalled item is returned and the fee is paid.

Library privileges will be suspended or revoked if users exceed certain thresholds set by the library. Students owing money to the library will be placed on registrar hold, which prevents registration and course changes. Additionally, diplomas and transcripts will be held until the charges have been completely cleared at the library.

Lost Items

Lost Items

If a lost item is returned before it is paid for, the bill is canceled, and extended use fees are applied.

If a lost book is paid for and is then found, refunds are given only under limited circumstances. A refund must be requested within six months of when the item is paid for, and the original receipt must be presented. If the item has been reordered by the library, no refund will be given. The $35.00 processing fee is non-refundable. Items that are paid for and returned after six months are considered gifts to the library. Refunds are not given for Link+, Interlibrary Loan, or Leisure Reading items.

Payment of Charges

Charges for fees and lost books may be in person at the Lied Library Circulation Desk or the Curriculum Materials Library.

Charges may also be paid online via your library account.

Details about online payment:
  • Online payment is available to UNLV users only. CSN, NSC, and Law users may pay their libraries directly.
  • Total charges must be $1.00 or greater in order to pay online.
  • Registrar holds will be cleared within 24 hours, often sooner.

Debt Recovery Agency

If the library is unable to collect payment for fees or unreturned materials, your account may be sent to a debt recovery agency.  An agency fees of $10 will be added to the amount owed to the library.  Payment for charges and return of missing items is still done directly with the Libraries.  Please contact the Lied Library Billing Specialist via the Circulation Desk at 702-895-2111


Notices are emailed out only as a courtesy. UNLV students, faculty, and staff must use their official email address (RebelMail or UNLVMail). If you do not receive notices you are still responsible for returning overdue library books and/or payment of any fines or fees incurred. It is your responsibility to notify the library of any address changes, so that you may receive notification of overdue materials or fines owed.

If your card is lost or stolen, immediately notify the UNLV Library Circulation Desk at 895-2111.


Fees may be appealed under certain circumstances. More information can be found on the Fee Appeal Form.
