Students are responsible for any materials for which there are loan records in their name. This responsibility ends only when the loan record is officially cancelled.

  • All students are subject to fines for late return of Library material.
  • All loans are subject to recall and must be returned when requested. Failure to return recalled material may result in the loss of borrowing privileges.
  • Items on hold can not be renewed.
  • BONUS+ material can usually be renewed once only, due to the demand of the item at its home institution. All Library users are subject to BONUS+ fines.
  • Borrowing privileges are suspended when more than $15.00 is owed.
  • Items borrowed from HNE Health libraries must be returned to HNE Health libraries and can not be requested for pick up at university locations. The loan period is 4 weeks with 2 renewals for all students.
  • The Renwick Centre items can have holds placed on them to be transferred to the UON campus libraries. The fulfillment of the holds is at the Renwick Centre Librarian's discretion.
  • BONUS+ holds are counted on existing holds and the requests remain on a record until they are returned to the home location.
