Dear University of Winchester,
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.
Fine income for 2015-2016 was £20,643.24.
The money is used to buy extra copies of books in demand and reference books which are used by students in more than one subject department.
We don't have any information with regard to category of user or country of origin.
