I dunno about students (since we don't circulate stuff to anyone but
faculty and grad teaching staff for overnight preview or one day use in
the classroom), but for the folks we do circ stuff to, we bill ten bucks
flat for overdues and, if they keep it out over a week, I bill for full
replacement cost plus the cost of tech processing. Nothing like a $450
bill to put the starch in a tenured faculty's shorts. And the cool thing
is that the library and campus are fully behind this policy.
