I lost/damage a library book. What should I do?

The Library charges a replacement fee for lost or damage books according to the price and availability of the book. If the original price of the book is RM100, you are charged for RM200, inclusive of any processing cost incurred.

If you decide to replace the book and purchase it at a local bookstore, you are only to be charged the price of the book (RM100). However, you may be charged for a minimal processing fee (up to the Chief Librarian’s discretion).

Failure to comply to the rule will effect the release of your graduation certificate.

Please contact Rohana Hussin, Circulation Services (rohana [at] oum [dot] edu [dot] my or 603-7801 1925), if you have any questions about borrowing policies or procedures.

Do I have to pay fines for late books?

Overdue fines are charged for RM 0.50 per item per day. Patrons will be billed replacement costs, including a RM25.00 processing fee, for significantly overdue books.

How many items can I borrow and for how long?

Library patrons must come in person and present a valid Open University Malaysia Student Card or Staff Card to check out books. Any book may be recalled after 14 days, regardless of the loan period, if it is requested by an OUM student, staff or faculty member.
