Loan categories and fines

Loan allowances

Students can borrow up to 15 items at a time, and research students can borrow a maximum of 20 items.
To improve the availability of library stock for everyone we charge fines when items are not returned on time. The amount charged depends on the length of time the item can be loaned for.
Charges apply throughout the year. The maximum charge on any one item is £20 per transaction. You'll temporarily lose your borrowing rights if items are not returned, and you have more than £5 owing on your account. Fines are charged according to type of loan:
