There are many situations that can cause a library record to become blocked. Two common examples are too many overdue materials and excessive fines. If your card becomes blocked, you will be unable to check out materials, renew materials, place orders for interlibrary loan materials, etc. To determine what has caused the blocked record and to reactivate your library privileges, please visit the Circulation Desk in the library.
