Fines for SLC items brought back late are particularly heavy at 40p per hour, or part of hour, overdue. In addition, further penalties restricting Library use and borrowing apply for the repeated late return of SLC items.
SLC loans can be re-issued if they are not required by another reader, but this must be done with the item at the Issue desk. SLC loans cannot be re-issued or the loan extended online or by telephone.
Please note that self-issue is not available for SLC items and they may not be removed from the SLC area unless issued at the desk.

Reservations for items on 3 hour loan should be collected by 11.00am, 2.00pm or 5.00pm according to the slot for which they were reserved.
