Fines and Fees

The Library assesses fines and fees to ensure that everyone has equal access to materials and equipment.  A failure to return items by the stamped due date (books) or by the verbally stated time (laptops & equipment) will result in overdue fines.  In cases in which items are not returned at all, items will be considered lost and replacement and processing fees will be assessed in addition to overdue fines. Damaged items are assessed on case-by-case basis. 

Balances under $10.00

Library accounts with balances under $10.00 are still considered in good standing and borrowing privileges are available.

Balances $10.00 and above

Library accounts with balances $10.00 and over are not in good standing and borrowing privileges are blocked until a payment is received.  The Library also places a block on a student's Banner account, which prevents transactions such as transcript requests and registration.  

Making Payments

  • Library:  Cash payments are accepted at the Library's Circulation Desk.  Note: Starting March 16, 2017, the schedule for financial transactions at the Circulation Desk will be 7:30 AM-3:00 PM until further notice.

Intra-System Loans

What is an Intra-System Loan?

As a Leeward CC faculty member, staff, or student, you have access to most of the items in all of the UH-system libraries. You should place a "hold" if you want to:
  1. Borrow an item from another UH-system library and have it delivered to your home campus
  2. Borrow an item from your campus' library and have it "held" for you at the Circulation Desk until you can pick it up
  3. Ensure that an item that's currently checked out will be available to you upon its return

Directions

  1. Access Voyager
  2. Search for the item you want. Once you are at the correct bibliographic record...
  3. Click on "Get This Item" in the blue column to the right of the record.
  4. Click "login", then enter your UH username and password.
  5. Click on "Hold or Transfer this Item".
  6. Choose the copy you want (Note: Items from outer-island campuses will take significantly longer to get to Oahu.)
  7. Choose a pickup location. Press "SUBMIT REQUEST".
  8. If the request was successful, you should see a message with that information. Now...you wait! Most items from Oahu campuses take 4-7 business days to move locations. Once the item has arrived at the specified pick-up location, you will receive an automatically generated email notifying you that it's ready for pick-up. If the item is from your home campus, it will typically be ready and waiting for you at the Library's Circulation Desk by the morning of the next business day.
