Ditto what Gary said. I love the "everybody/nobody else does it" I had a guy who insisted we could circulate copies of our more expensive titles, archive the masters, AND make him a personal copy for his classroom use. After all "everybody" does it, just try to get him to tell you which institutions are "everybody" and they clam right up!

Hi, everyone -
I haven't been on the list for ages...missed you all!

anyways, I'm curious as to whether university
libraries fine faculty or not....we fine faculty for
books and at a steeper fine -videos. A faculty member
who is abusing the very fair checkout privileges is
complaining that "nobody fines, but us..."

can you mail me off-list as to whether you fine, and
how much you fine for media materials?
And, if you don't fine, do you find that faculty
return in a timely fashion or abuse due dates?
