Q. Have library fines been suspended? Will I have to pay them when I return? My books are overdue.
All items checked out from the UAB Libraries before the campus closed on March 16, 2020 should be returned by September 15, 2020. Library fines will begin accruing on that date. Please use an exterior book return slot or book return box when returning your materials so they can be properly quarantined.
Library fines were suspended in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. Individuals with items checked out (including interlibrary loans) were not charged for overdue materials during the spring and summer 2020 semesters.
If you have questions about returning materials about the revised due date or fines, you can contact Access Services at (205) 934-4338 or Interlibrary Loan at (205) 934-6364.
