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

Yours faithfully,

Jack Forks

Fiona Bagchi, Leeds College of Art

Dear Mr Forks

I am writing in response to your Freedom of Information request dated 31
October 2017 concerning library fines.
 
I can confirm that the University holds the information requested. The
following information has been provided by the University’s Library
service: The fines income for 2016-2017 is:

Blenheim Walk site (HE): £1,730.47
Vernon Street site (FE) £ 227.67

I hope that this is the information that you require. If you are
dissatisfied with the handling of your request, you have the right to ask
for an internal review. Internal review requests should be submitted
within two months of the date of receipt of this response and should be
addressed to: the Vice-Chancellor, Leeds Arts University, Blenheim Walk,
Leeds, LS2 9AQ.

If you are not content with the outcome of the internal review, you have
the right to apply directly to the Information Commissioner for a
decision. The Information Commissioner can be contacted at: Information

Yours sincerely

Fiona Bagchi
