Claims returned or never borrowed

If there is an item on patrons library accounts which they believe they have returned or did not borrow, The Library staff will carry out several searches for the item over the course of 6 weeks. The library will place a note on the Library account concerning the claim and give the item ‘claim returned’ status so that the patron will not receive overdue emails. If the search is successful, the item will be taken from the patron account, and any fines associated with the claim will be waived. If the library staff are not able to find the item, we will be obliged to bill you for a replacement copy. According to Library policy, users who have items checked out in their name are responsible for their proper use and timely return. This means that the borrower, assume financial responsibility for any items you have borrowed until they are discharged from your account.

LLSH Policy for missing or damaged items

When a library patron loses an item or returns a damaged item to the library, the patron will be required to pay for replacement of the item. This payment will be non-refundable even if the item is subsequently found and returned to the library. ECAE will apply the following criteria when calculating the cost of any replacement:

*Lost Item(s): Replacement cost plus 100 AED administration charge.

*Damaged item(s): the library manager will decide on costs based on the level of damage to the item.
