Use of the Card

The card is not transferable. Only the person to whom it was issued may use it.


Fines may be imposed for material not returned by the due date. The fine schedule at the lending university will apply to all borrowers. IUBP cards with outstanding fines will not be renewed.

Damaged or Lost Books

A borrower is responsible for material borrowed in his / her name. Lost books should be reported promptly to the Head of Circulation at the borrower’s own institution. Lost, damaged or non-returned material is subject to replacement charges as determined by the lending institution.

Fines and fees

If materials are not returned and fines are not paid at the participating library, Queen’s University Library may apply blocks to library accounts, including withdrawals from library privileges such as access to Inter-library loans, and assignment of study carrels. Blocks may also impact receiving marks, diplomas, transcripts and the right to register for courses.

I have read and understand the stated regulations. I understand that failure to observe them will result in the loss of borrowing privileges in all  participating libraries and that sanctions may be  applied.
