Q. How do I know if a book is overdue?


Books are due on the date indicated in BobCat. A reminder notice will be e-mailed to you three days before your books are due. If your books is overdue, you will be sent overdue notices approximately every three days until the item goes into billing.

Notices are sent to the email address the library has on file for you. All NYU card holders will be sent email notifications to their NYU Home accounts. To forward to a preferred email account from NYU Home, please see information on NYU email.

The library sends these notices as a courtesy; books are due on the date indicated whether or not you receive an overdue notice. Failure to receive these notices does not exempt the user from any fines that may accrue as a result of lateness.

A bill will be sent to you if your account totals $6.00 or more in unpaid fines and fees. You will be billed for the replacement cost, and fines, of any books which are more than 50 days overdue (or for recalled books which are more than 20 days overdue). Bills should be paid within 30 days to avoid having your information sent to a collection agency.
