The Fees in case a book is lost during the borrowing

The Meeting of the Administrators of Kasetsart University Library Networks on March 6, 2009 at 9.00 - 12.00 hrs. at the Meeting Room No. 2, the 2nd Floor, the Debaratana Vidhayachote Building, the KU Main Libray, the had a Resolution to set a median price/ standard price for printed materials, in case a book is lost during a member’s borrowing and in case of inter-library loan.

Remarks
         This agreement is used for all libraries in Kasetsart University. If any library does not put a price in the item record, the Millennium System will pull the predetermined median price to be the result for notifying of the fines to the user who lost the library’s book during the borrowing.

The agreement of the criteria for determining Standard Prices / Median Prices of printed materials:

Case 1  A user lost one book

1.1 the book has value in cash

A fine  = the book price + processing cost (acquisition/analysis) + fine* 
one book (in Thai) = the book price + processing cost (150) + 1 time of the book price
one book (in English) = the book price + processing cost (150) + 0.5 time of the book price

1.2 the book doesn’t have value in cash (donation)

A fine  = Median Price (assessment) + processing cost (acquisition/analysis) + fine* 
one Thesis = Median Price 1,000 + processing cost (150) + 1 time of assessed price
one IS = Median Price 1,000 + processing cost (150) + 1 time of assessed price
   
A fine = price (assessment) + processing cost (acquisition/analysis) + fine*
one book (in Thai) = assessed price (600) + processing cost (150) + 1 time of assessed price
one book (in English) = assessed price (1,600) + processing cost (150) +1 time of assessed price


** In case the English book costs more than the assessed price, staff can use the price which is higher than the assessed price

Remarks!!
* A fine in this context means the fine in case a user did some damages, causing other users to not be able to use the book that was lost. In addition, this does not include the overdue fine.

Case 2 To request for an inter-library photocopy
Photocopying Fee = No. of pages x Baht 2 ----------------
