DAMAGE AND LOSS OF BOOKS :

Unauthorized removal, minor damage or defacement of Law Library materials renders a user liable to a fine not exceeding Bds.$25.00, at the discretion of the Law Librarian.

The reader must pay the cost of replacing a lost or seriously damaged book or other item, in addition to any fine which he may have incurred before reporting the loss or damage. (UWI Calendar, vol 1., 1978, p. 129, Regulation 15).

Overnight borrowing privileges are automatically suspended until all outstanding fines are paid, and overdue material returned. Failing this:-

  1. The Law Library will send a list of names to the Campus Bursar prior to the commencement of exams; and
  2. Students who are in bad standing prior to the examination periods may not be permitted to sit  examinations.

STUDENTS IN BAD STANDING :

The names of all those who are not in good standing with the library - that is, those who, after due notice, have failed to return overdue items or have failed to pay fines or the cost of items lost or damaged will be submitted to the Principal for further action. (UWI Calendar, vol 1., 1978, p. 129, Regulation 16)

 NON-UWI USERS/NON-STUDENTS

 If the user in bad standing is an Non-UWI User he/she may be denied use of the Law Library and its facilities by the Law Librarian.
