How do account blocks work?

We're replacing Library fines with account blocks, to support you better in your studies and help you succeed.

Instead of being charged daily when an item is overdue, we'll temporarily block your account and you won't be able to borrow. If the item isn't returned after 10 days, it's treated as lost and a charge of £30.00 is added to your account.

Please note, you can still use all our online resources such as eBooks, online journal articles and other electronic materials if your account is blocked.
