More books and lower fines!

We have made some changes to some of our policies for loans and fines.

Good news! If you are a student or staff from another Faculty you will now be able to borrow more books from us.

Loans

Undergraduates: 10 books for 7 days (standard loan); fiction and store room books 28 days.

Graduates and staff: 15 books for 14 days (standard loan); fiction and store room books 28 days.

Fines

25p per day per overdue book

50p per day per requested, overdue book

You also now have 1 day’s grace for fines, so if you return a book 1 day late. you won’t get fined for this. But if you return it 2 days late you’ll still be fined for both days the book has been overdue.

Changes have been made to harmonize policies across most libraries in the University of Cambridge.
