I am conducting a research product in order to ascertain the total number of Library fines that were paid at universities in the UK.
I am therefore writing to ask about library fines during the academic year 2016/2017, under the Freedom of Information Act. 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 if possible – this request solely relates to the cost of items that are returned later than their due date.
Many thanks, and do let me know if you require any further clarification
