Lost or Damaged Materials

All borrowers are personally responsible for any materials checked out on their accounts. A borrower who has lost a book from any of the SLU Libraries will be charged $120. Materials borrowed from other libraries will be billed based on the owning library's policies. If you have damaged or lost library materials, please call 314.977.2758 or email xlcirc@slu.edu.

Proxy Borrowing

Faculty members who wish to have faculty fellows or research assistants check out SLU Library materials on their behalf must fill out a Faculty Fellow Authorization Form.

Faculty Fellows should not check out items for a faculty member on their student accounts. Students are responsible for all items checked out on their accounts and will be billed accordingly for lost or damaged items.

Faculty fellows cannot directly borrow from other SLU Libraries, MOBIUS, or Prospector on behalf of faculty members. Those needing to borrow items on behalf of their faculty member, should see their faculty member’s Library Liaison or send an email to xlcirc@slu.edu.
