Library no longer issues fines for overdue loan items

To support you during the cost-of-living crisis, we have stopped charging fines on overdue loan items.

From today, you'll no longer incur Library fines for overdue loan items. We've made this change to support you given the ongoing cost-of-living crisis, but we need your help to make it sustainable. 

Please help us support the University community by returning all your Library loan items by their due dates.

If another Library user requests a book you have on loan, you will need to return it. We will email you to let you know the new due date for the item. You can return books to any Library site. 

Remember, you may only borrow High Demand items for three nights (five nights for some DASS-registered students). This is because course leaders have told us that many students will need access to these key items at similar times.

If you don't return an item 14 days after its due date, we will have to invoice you for the full cost of replacing it to ensure it is available for other Library users. We'll email you if this happens, and invoices for non-returned items can be paid via the University's online store
