Borrowing Loan Policy and Procedures Membership Fees Fines

Borrowers are fined for the late return of books and are charged with the cost of replacement if books are lost or damaged.  All unpaid fines will result in suspension of borrowing privileges until the fines have been paid.  Unpaid fines need to be cleared before exam results can be accessed or before a student can register for an upcoming semester.

During the semester the Library Cashier hours are from 9 am - 10:45 pm Monday - Friday.  On Saturdays the hours are 9 am - 4 pm, and on Sundays that area is closed.

  • $1.00 per day, per item for postgraduate and undergraduate students, and also for members of the academic, research and senior administrative staff.
For all other borrowers the fine is
  • $1.00 per day, per item.
For periodicals the fine is
  • $0.50 per day per item.
For items from the Overnight, Reserve and West Indies Collections, the fine is
