If you get responses off list, would you mind either sharing them with me or
summarizing the responses on the list so others can see it I am now with the

I previously was an Air Force librarian and we did not charge for overdues.
However, all AF libraries had an Air Force regulation to back us up when an item
was lost. It stated that if an item was lost, the "sponsor" (the library
registration was in the name of the person actually working for the government
-- the sponsor. The entire family checked out under that name) had to pay
replacement cost without deducting anything for depreciation. If the person did
not voluntarily pay, we were authorized to process a form that would deduct the
amount automatically from the person's paycheck.
