Announcing a Library Fines Amnesty – Paving the way for Automatic Renewals

From 11th April until the end of semester, we are offering a fines amnesty*. We would really encourage you to use this as an opportunity to return any overdue loans and to ensure your Library account is clear. Just talk to Library staff at the counters at either site.

Then, to help enhance your experience of using the Library, from 1st July we will:

·         Automatically renew all your loans as long as they have not been reserved by another user, so you won’t be charged fines. Fines will still be charged if a renewal isn't possible due to a reservation by another library user.
·         Send you email reminders if the loan has been reserved and cannot be renewed, so you have time to return it before fines begin. 
·         Send you a monthly statement with everything you currently have on loan - so  keep an eye on your University e-mail account.

* All fines will be waived except those incurred on loans reserved by another borrower. We cannot refund fines already paid and will still charge for the replacement of lost books. All loans must be returned before you leave the University and unreturned items are considered an outstanding debt.
