If books are showing as ‘LOST’ on your library account, then this means that they have been overdue for 5 weeks. You will then be invoiced for the replacement cost of the book, unless the book is returned. Books showing as LOST cannot be renewed. If you have any items showing as ‘LOST’, your library account will also be blocked and you won’t be able to borrow any more books.
If you have any books which are showing as ‘LOST’, then they need to be returned to us as soon as possible. You will not then need to pay the invoiced charge. If you are unable to come into the university to return the books, then you can consider posting the books back to us via recorded delivery. Please note, this is at your own risk and you will still be responsible for the cost of the book if it gets lost in the post.
If a book is showing as ‘LOST’ which you think you have already returned to the library, please contact us as soon as possible and we will perform a shelf check to see if the book is in the library. If the book is found, then we will clear it from your account and you will no longer have to pay the charge.
More information about lost books, and your library account, can be found at http://www.salford.ac.uk/library/use/library-account. Information about lost books is under the ‘Fines & Charges’ tab.
