The Library no longer charges fines for late return of items in most circumstances. For standard and 7-day loan items fines are only charged when items have been recalled because they have been requested by another Library customer. See the link below to the Library's fines policy for other circumstances where charges may be made.
We still recommend that you ensure that your books do not go overdue. Take these steps to make sure items do not become overdue and there is no chance of incurring fines:
- Make sure you renew books when they become due. If you check My Library Account you will be prevented from renewing items that have been requested and you will know you need to return them.
- Check your University email regularly. If an item is requested by someone else after you borrowed it you will be sent an email when it is due for return. We send a courtesy notice one day before items are due for return (except 1-day and 3-day loan items). We also send overdue notices to this email address, and notification of books that are recalled. Recalled items may become due at an earlier date than the original return date.
- Get in touch using one of the Contact Us options on this page if you have a problem with fines, or visit the Library to discuss your options.
