Responsibilities
Borrowers are responsible for all materials charged out on their card. Cards and borrowed materials should be kept in a secure location and never loaned to others. A lost card should be reported immediately to Public Safety and a replacement obtained from the ID office.

STUDENTS, FACULTY AND STAFF: Most communications from the Library are sent to the user's official UWG email address (StudentName@my.westga.edu or EmployeeName@westga.edu); therefore, even if you usually use another email address, it is very important that you check your UWG email regularly. Failure to receive a notice does not release you from responsibility to respond to recalls promptly or pay any fines and fees you owe. The Library is not responsible for undelivered mail.

It is the borrower's responsibility to maintain a current address (including email) with the Library. Changes of address (including email) should be reported immediately. Failure to receive notification does not relieve the borrower of the obligation to return materials when they are due. The Library is not responsible for undelivered mail.

Borrowers are also responsible for the repair costs of any library items returned in damaged condition.
