There are multiple reasons why a patron’s record may be blocked.
If a patron has a recalled book that is overdue, the record is automatically blocked. Once the book is checked in, the record will be unblocked.
If the patron owes too much money, the record will be blocked. Maximum amounts a patron can owe before being blocked are:
Graduate student: $999.99
Undergraduate student: $999.99
Patrons will also be blocked from checking out material if their patron record has expired.
A library staff member may put a manual block on a record for various reasons. If your record is blocked and you need help resolving the problem, contact the Circulation staff by phone at (314) 935-5420, or by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
