Fine Appeal Form


Books can be returned to any campus library regardless of where they were borrowed.

  • You can return books by using the self-service kiosks, available throughout all libraries. Please pay careful attention to the instructions given on the screen.
  • Some of our libraries operate book return boxes when the library is closed so that you can return books outside of normal opening hours.

What happens if I have lost an item?

You will have to pay the replacement cost of the item and if you have accrued any fines on that item you will have to pay those too. If you have lost an item, make sure you tell us as soon as possible via library@uwtsd.ac.uk  or by visiting one of our libraries.
