Q. How do I know when my books are due?


Due dates will be given at the time of check out. If you check an item out from the Bobst Library Circulation desk, you will be e-mailed a loan receipt with the due date to your NYU e-mail. If you use a self-check machine, a receipt will be printed with the due date. Loan periods vary based on the type of item you’re borrowing, your user status, and library.

Check your library account for the most up to date due dates. When an item is about to become due, a reminder notice will be e-mailed to you three days before your book is due. If your book is overdue, you will be sent overdue notices approximately every five days until the item goes into billing. You will be billed for the replacement cost of any books after 30 days overdue (20 days for recalled items). Bills should be paid within 30 days to avoid having your information sent to a collection agency.

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.

The library sends these notices as a courtesy; books are due on the date indicated whether or not you receive an overdue notice.
