Borrow from Himmelfarb: Missing, Lost or Damaged Items

Missing, Lost or Damaged

Missing Items
If an item is missing from our shelves, you may request a search for it by using the search request module. Use this form ONLY to request materials which are missing from our book shelves. Once the search request is submitted, you will be informed of the status of the item within 3 business days.

Lost Items
If a Himmelfarb Library item becomes lost or stolen while in your possession, contact the Circulation Desk Manager immediately. You will be responsible for paying replacement fees and any overdue fines accrued before the item was reported lost. In some cases, a portion of the fines will be forgiven if there is documentation of theft.

If you receive an overdue notice for an item which you returned to the Library, contact the Circulation Desk at (202) 994-2962.

Damaged Items
Damaged materials should be returned to the Library immediately. You will be responsible for paying repair or replacement costs for each item, plus a $25.00 processing fee per item.
