Full List of Library Policies

All borrowers are subject to fines and suspension of library privileges for the late return, loss or damage of library materials.

The Reg Erhardt Library has limited resources to share among thousands of borrowers. Our fines help ensure that material is returned on time and is available to the maximum number of users. The $1.00/day overdue fine is in line with what is charged at other academic institutions within Alberta.

Fines Guidelines

For SAIT borrowers:
  • Fines in excess of $10.00, or having more than 2 overdue items, will result in a suspension of borrowing privileges.
  • Any outstanding fines, overdue items or other charges will bar borrowers from renewing materials online or accessing electronic content while off campus.
  • SAIT students with outstanding fines or other charges will have holds placed on their Student Services registration accounts preventing further registration or the release of diplomas and transcripts.

For Alumni and TAL borrowers:

  • Borrowing, holds and online renewal privileges are suspended when there are any outstanding charges on the borrower's account or once any borrowed item becomes overdue.

For all borrowers:

  • Fines and other library charges should be paid at the Library Information Desk. Methods of payment are: cash, credit card and debit card. Credit card payments can be paid over the phone.
  • Outstanding accounts for any borrower may be transferred to a collection agency. If this occurs the collection agency will add a $15.00 surcharge to the borrower's account.
