Policy Regarding Theft, Attempted Theft or Mutilation of Materials

Library materials are resources intended to benefit and be shared by the entire university community. Steps will be taken to deal with individuals who do not respect that intent.

Attempted Theft or Theft

If you are stopped at the security check-point and found to have materials that are not properly checked out in your possession, we will record the details of the incident, including your name, address, Banner ID# and the time and date.

If it is determined that you attempted theft of library materials, you will receive a letter of warning and a copy of this letter will be submitted to the Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs for inclusion in your university records. The Dean of Library Services and the library's Head of Public Services will also retain a copy of this letter.

Damaged or Mutilated Materials

Damaged or mutilated library materials will result in you being charged the replacement cost plus a processing fee. Faculty or staff offenders will be sent a letter of warning which will also be provided to your supervisor and respective vice chancellor.

Multiple Offenses

Second offenses (of either theft, attempted theft or mutilation) may result in the revocation of your library privileges and possibly trial before the appropriate judicial tribunal.

Refer to N.C. Law Protecting Library Property 14-398, (1943, C.542 (23)).
