IDD: Overdue and Lost Item Policies

You will receive a reminder notification via email when an ILL loan is about to be due followed by overdue emails after the due date.

Overdue interlibrary loans are fined $15.00 per item after you receive an "Extremely Overdue" notice. In addition, your IDD account is blocked until the overdue fine is paid and/or the item is returned. Once the fine is paid, please email or call (213) 740-4020 to unblock your account.

ILL items lost or not returned will be automatically charged a $150.00 replacement fee.

Please note that replacement copies in lieu of the replacement fee are no longer accepted.

Overdue fines can be paid at any USC Libraries Circulation Desk. Again, please email when the overdue fee is paid so that we may unblock your account.

Excessive or consistent overdue items will result in permanent suspension of ILL privileges.
