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

A Guide to all IDD Services

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 contact us at or (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 of lost items are no longer accepted in lieu of the replacement fee.

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 IDD privileges.
