UoY Flexible Loans Policy Launched

Today, the University of York has introduced a new borrowing policy in the library, most texts can now be borrowed for 4 weeks at a time, unless they are requested by another user.

Key points:
  • Borrowing periods are 4 weeks (for most items) unless requested by another user
  • If you request an item that it out of stock you should not have to wait as long for the item to be returned and made avaialble for you
  • No fines if you return a book late that no one else has requested
  • Fines on overdue requested items are charged at £2 per item per day - this is to encourage users to bring items back on time so that other users are not inconvenienced.
  • Length of loan adjust automatically depending on thr circumstances of the borrower (e.g. full time or part time) and depending on demand - items with a long waiting list are issued for less time to ensure evberyone gets chance to use it.
