Fines and charges

Items borrowed must be returned by the due date. All members are liable for any fines incurred due to the late return of items as follows:

  • 20p per item per day for standard and two week loan items (up to a maximum of £5.00)
  • 50p per item per day for 7 day loan items (up to a maximum of £5.00)
  • £1 per item per day for special loan items (up to a maximum of £10.00)
  • £2 per item per day for laptops, iPads and associated equipment (up to a maximum of £50.00).

If you incur fines of £5.00 or more, all borrowing rights will be suspended until fines are paid (with the exception of those with ‘External’ category of membership who are not permitted to borrow if any fines are owed).

You may be charged for items supplied from outside the ‘BASE’ area or for journal articles held by BASE libraries, charges may vary.
