Interlibrary Loan and Document Delivery (IDD): Overdue & Lost Item Policies

A Guide to all IDD Services

Overdue and Lost Item Policies

ILL overdue reminders and notifications are sent three times a week via e-mail.  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 contact us at idd@usc.edu or (213) 740-4020 to unblock your account.

ILL items lost or not returned will be automatically charged a $90.00 replacement fee.

In some cases, the lending library may be willing to accept a physical replacement of the lost and/or damaged item. If you choose to provide an exact replacement in lieu of the $90.00, please contact us first so that we may ask the lending library if a replacement copy is acceptable. 

Overdue fines can be paid at any USC Libraries circulation desk. Again, please contact IDD 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.
