Whether or not you pay fines, and how much you are charged, varies from library to library. Usually, college libraries will add fines to college bills, while fines at faculty and departmental libraries are paid directly to the library, either in cash or online. Information about fines and how to pay them can usually be found on your library’s website. The library staff will also be happy to help you! Contact details for all of the libraries in the University can be found in the Libraries Directory.

Alternatively, you can see any outstanding fines when you are logged into your library account on iDiscover.

Of course, if you are facing circumstances beyond your control, for instance, illness, most libraries will waive fees with a doctors note or similar proof.

If you are having trouble getting your items back on time, you can add a feed of your library loans to your Google Calendar, Yahoo Calendar, Thunderbird/Lightning, Outlook and Mac OSX Calendar, or your RSS feed reader. To get an RSS feed of your library loans, click the "Feeds" tab when you are logged in to your library account (instructions above).

It might also be worth giving ebooks a try, as they will never go overdue!
