Adding Manual Fines

Policy:

Only the home library may add charges to a patron's record, such as for damage to an item or any other fee created manually. If manual fines need to be added to an out-of-town patron, the library must contact the patron's home library. Charges added to a patron's record must be accompanied by explanatory notes.

Recommendation:

It is recommended that the item barcode be used when adding a manual fine once the patron’s library has reimbursed the owning library to keep the connection between the title/author of the item and the fine. This will not prevent the item from being withdrawn by the owning library.

Collecting

Policy:

Patron notes related to any charge added manually should be deleted by the library that collects the fine. Patron notes should not be deleted if a partial payment is collected.
