No fines for January & February

wanted-poster-2017Happy New Year to all students and staff!

To start the year we have a fines amnesty on.  This means you can return overdue books without having to pay fines.  So if you have come across some library books over the holidays now is a good time to return them. No questions asked.   Books can be returned to any campus library.

The amnesty is on for a limited time only (9th of January to 28th of February 2017) and does not include admin fees for books that have been invoiced.  See posters at campus libraries or ask staff for details.

Time to return your overdue books


As we edge closer to the end of another busy term, now is the perfect time to return any overdue items to the library without receiving any fines. We are keen to recover any overdue resources you may have forgotten about or misplaced. If you genuinely think you may have lost an item it is still worth letting library staff know so that we can come to an arrangement with you and ensure stock is replaced. Please return any overdue items to your library (see posters for details of arrangements in your campus) and we shall take them off your account without any fines being incurred.

The amnesty will remain in place until 20th June so if you have been intending to drop by with your overdue books, journals or DVDs, now is the time to do it!

Thank you for your co-operation.
