UPDATE: Library Fines Synced to Student Accounts for ASU Patrons (Faculty, Staff, and Students)

Through a successful collaboration with Student Accounts, the Registrar's Office, ITS and the University Library, all library charges will now sync with the ASU Banner system.  This change will make the library billing process faster, simpler and more transparent and brings the library in line with other campus units.  All library charges will appear at the library and on faculty, staff and student banner accounts.

This will enable faculty, staff and students to pay library charges at either the University Library or at Student Accounts.
