The North South University (NSU) campus community relies on the Library and its services for materials to support research and teaching in every field. The NSU Library, in turn, relies on its users for help in its efforts to provide equal and timely access to the materials in its collection. When materials are not returned in a timely manner, other users are denied access to these resources. Library users help by returning or renewing materials on or before the date they are due. Complying with Library circulation policies enables all users to share the wealth of our available resources.

Overdue Notices

All library borrowers will receive a advanced warning notice (usually one day before of due date) of Fine or Fee and/or a Statement of Fines and Fees from the library, usually via email. (If you did not get advanced notice please contact library circulation desk, and activate advanced notice option.)
