      materials in reprint or microform, if available.
5.  Patrons owing fines of $5.00 or more and/ or have lost materials may not request
      interlibrary loans until the fines have been paid in full, and/ or the lost materials
      are cleared. The library will not process ILL requests for patrons with overdue ILL
6.  I understand materials must be returned by their due date to avoid late charges

      that lend free of charge.  If a free source is not available, the patron will be
      required to pay the charges up front.  The patron will be notified and given
      opportunity to decline the requested materials and the lending library fees.
