Greetings. As we prepare to open our new Media Center, we have been updating old policies and adding new ones. One of these is our circulation policy for videos, which includes a discussion of fines charged for overdue videos. Currently our videos circulate for 24 hours (this is a video collection whose priority is classroom use) and our fines in the past have been, we all agree, much too low to have any impact.

We were wondering what sort of fines other centers collect for overdue fees. Any help you can offer will be greatly appreciated. Please answer to the list, as others might find this discussion useful. Thanks, in advance, for your help.
