Courtesy overdue reminders are sent via email.
Failure to receive such a reminder is not considered grounds for reduction or cancellation of fines.
Media fines for each barcoded item (including CD booklets): The Music Library does not charge a daily overdue fine. However, on the 7th day overdue you are billed the standard replacement cost plus a $5.00 processing penalty. The $5.00 penalty remains after the item is returned or replaced.

InterLibrary Borrowing & RLCP
~ Borrowing from other institutions ~
See Interlibrary Borrowing for details.

Stanford faculty, academic/professional staff, and currently registered graduate students may also borrow library materials when visiting UC Berkeley;
UC Berkeley card holders enjoy reciprocal borrowing privileges when visiting Stanford.

~ Borrowing from Stanford (by non-Stanford researchers) ~
All requests must originate from your home institution/library and be sent to the Interlibrary Services Office.
We do not loan materials directly to individuals.
Borrowing privileges are available for purchase.
Photocopy requests from other institutions may be submitted through the SULAIR Interlibrary Lending page.
Master's theses and projects and DMA term projects are strictly for in-house use only. Due to the uniqueness of these unpublished items, we cannot provide them for loan. In addition, the Library does not hold the copyright for these items and therefore cannot provide photocopies or digital reproductions. Researchers interested in obtaining copies are directed to contact the author or their estate for assistance.
~ Memorial Library of Music ~
Requests for photoreproductions, and all other related inquiries, should be addressed to the Department of Special Collections.
