Dear University of Bradford,

I am writing to ask about library fines during the academic year 2015/2016. For the time period starting from the first day of term, covering the next 364 days (e.g. one full year), please provide:

1. The total amount of money the library received from the payment of overdue items. Exclude costs of replacing lost books - this request solely relates to the cost of books that are returned later than their due date.

2. Information about where this money then goes (is it absorbed into a specific library budget for example? if so what one?)

3. If possible, from the figure provided in 1, break this down by

a) category of user paying fine (e.g. undergraduate, postgraduate, staff)
b) country of origin of user paying fine (e.g. France, Italy, US). If only broader categories are possible e.g. "EU", "non-EU" then please provide this instead.

Many thanks, and do let me know if you require any further clarification.

Yours faithfully,

Jack Forks

I am writing in response to your request for information dated and
received by the University on 17 February 2017.

 

The answers to your questions are:

 

1. The total amount of money the library received from the payment of
overdue items. Exclude costs of replacing lost books - this request solely
relates to the cost of books that are returned later than their due date.

 

01/08/15 - 31/07/16 =  £56,755.89

 

2. Information about where this money then goes (is it absorbed into a
specific library budget for example? if so what one?)

 

The fines go into our income budget line which is balanced against our
total expenditure including spend on books and journal purchases.

 

3. If possible, from the figure provided in 1, break this down by

 

This is not possible as we do not record the information in the form
requested. 

 

a) category of user paying fine (e.g. undergraduate, postgraduate, staff)

broader categories are possible e.g. "EU", "non-EU" then please provide

Please do not hesitate to contact us if we can be of any further
assistance in this matter.

 

Yours sincerely
