The new I-Share Borrowing Policy will go into effect on Thursday, January 5, 2012.
When a patron has any one of the following, they will be blocked from performing additional I-Share remote requests, I-Share onsite checkouts or I-Share renewal transactions until the blocking condition has been resolved:
- 25 I-Share items overdue
- 1 I-Share item recalled and overdue
- 3 I-Share items lost
- 10 claims returned on I-Share items
- 10 I-Share items self-shelved (returned to the shelf without discharge)
- $200 total owed in I-Share fines or fees
What this means is that any member of the University of St. Francis community who has one or more of the above conditions for any materials borrowed from ANY I-Share libraries will automatically be blocked from borrowing more materials from other I-Share libraries.

From ABC News:
A Chicago Public Library amnesty program that allowed members to return overdue items without having to pay any late fees brought in more than 100,000 books, DVDs and other materials – including a rare, limited edition novel that was turned in 78 years late.
The rare edition of Oscar Wilde’s The Picture of Dorian Gray had been checked out in 1934. According to Reuters news agency, Harlean Hoffman Vision found the book in her late mother’s possessions and wanted to bring it back, but she wanted to make sure she wouldn’t go to jail for having had it so long.
“She kept saying, ‘You’re not going to arrest me?’ and we said, ‘No, we’re so happy you brought it back!’” Ruth Lednicer, the library’s marketing director, said.

Do you know if you have any overdue books checked out from Brown Library? If you’d like to check to see if you have any overdue items, you can log into your account in BernieCat.
Luckily, Brown Library won’t charge you fines for late-returned materials… But, who knows, that book lying under your bed may just be a rare item someday! If you do have materials that you need to return, please bring them to the Library Circulation desk.
The Library will be closed on Martin Luther King Day – which is this Monday, January 21st. We will re-open for regular hours on Tuesday the 22nd.
