How to Replace Lost Books

Book Replacement Policy

Lost materials are subject to a $95 replacement fee. In some cases, patrons may be allowed to purchase a replacement copy for the library instead of paying a replacement fee. If you are interested in this option, you must contact CSU Libraries at before proceeding.

The following guidelines apply to replacement items:

  • The replacement item must be identical to the missing item (same ISBN/copyright date)
  • Replacement materials must be new; used materials will not be accepted
  • Replacement copies must be delivered to the Library Services desk. If you are unable to deliver the item in person, mail it to: Morgan Library, Attn: Records Unit, Room 161, Colorado State University, 1019 Campus Delivery, Fort Collins, CO 80523-1019. Please include your full contact information, including CSU ID number, with the item.

In some cases, an exact replica of the missing item may not be available. In those cases, the we may refer you to our collections librarian, who will consider whether an alternative copy may be acceptable.
