Public Law Library Increases Fees

By Rita Dermody


What were you paying for a gallon of gasoline in 1974? What did you pay for a dozen eggs in 1982? Mostly likely you paid 53 cents for a gallon of gas and 84 cents for a dozen eggs.

Did you know that in 1974 the Law Library adopted 50 cents per day as the fine for overdue books? As early as 1982, we charged 15 cents per photocopy. These library fees have stayed the same since that time while the costs for other goods and services have increased significantly, if not exponentially.

After much deliberation, effective February 1, the Public Law Library has decided to increase all fees except for the subscriber membership fees. The new fees are:

  • Photocopy and computer print charges for black-and-white prints: 20 cents per page;
  • Color photocopies: 75 cents per page;
  • Overdue book fines: $1 per book per day;
  • Conference room reservations: $15 per hour for subscribers; $20 per hour for non-subscribers;
  • Document delivery: $20 per document requested for subscribers; $25 per document for non-subscribers; and
  • Facsimiles and document scanning: $2 for the first 20 pages and 20 cents per page thereafter.
