Changes to library late fees

Oulu University Library makes changes to the fees charged for items returned after their due date. For course textbooks, instead of the earlier single fee for the restoration of borrowing rights, overdue fees will accumulate daily. The change will not affect billing charges or replacement fees for lost items. Since the library system will be undergoing testing in August-September, the customer account page may display inaccurate information during this time. Customers will not be charged unjustified fees. The new fees will apply from 1 October 2016. Further information.
