All patrons are subject to the Circulating Materials Policy of the HPU Libraries and are responsible for the materials borrowed from the University Libraries until they are returned.  Patrons are also responsible for any fines and fees incurred for late, lost or damaged materials.  Reference books are non-circulating.
