2016/17 Library Fine Spend Revealed for University of Manchester

Figures obtained by UniEel have revealed huge fines being spent at University’s across the United Kingdom at library’s. At the University of Manchester, it was revealed that students spent £29,557 on library fines during the 2016-17 academic year. This figure is below the average amount seen across institutions in the United Kingdom. To put this figure into perspective, with around 40,000 students at Manchester, this equates to a spend of approximately £0.74 per student. It is also important to note that this figure purely takes into account fines for overdue items. Other fines, such as those for lost or damaged books, haven’t been considered.

In an age where education is at an unprecedented high for cost, having to spend money on library fines is disappointing. While the University experience is full of fun moments, this additional cost can be frustrating. Furthermore, not all Universities levy fines for overdue items – with the University of Westminster an example of an institution that instead temporarily bans students from taking out books. In recent years, other institutions have followed the lead of Westminster. This surely offers more of a deterrent.

Sometimes student’s could argue that a monetary fine is worthwhile due to the additional time spent with a book. Yet a ban would severely affect them for future assignments/exams. It is often unclear where the money gained from library fines ends up, which is a bone of contention for many. The University of Manchester’s graduates are at least officially the most sought-after by top employers – which can help offset some of the disappointment emanating from these figures, and the fact a library fine system is still in operation.

 


WHERE NEXT?


 

Students are urged to return their library books on time – in order to avoid the level of fines we’ve witnessed during the 2016-17 academic year. While it is undoubtedly annoying when you have reserved a book, only for it not to have been returned, the library fine system is clearly not working. A switch to the before-mentioned banning system could work better, and act as a better deterrent. At the very least, more transparency could be expected for where the money spent on library fines actually goes.

Southampton Uni and Library Fines

Figures obtained by UniEel have revealed huge fines being spent at University’s across the United Kingdom at library’s. However, the University of Southampton is one of the exceptions to the rule. The University’s library doesn’t charge fines for overdue items, instead opting to block users from loaning other items temporarily. This meant students spent nothing on library fines. With fines sometimes totalling over £100,000 at other UK institutions, the system adopted by Southampton can be applauded.

Sometimes student’s could argue that a monetary fine is worth it due to the additional time spent with a book. Yet a ban severely affects them for future assignments/exams. It is often unclear where the money gained from library fines ends up too, which can be another source of distress.

Revealed: How Much Did Sheffield Uni Students Spend on Library Fines?

Figures obtained by UniEel have revealed huge fines being spent at University’s across the United Kingdom at library’s. However, thankfully, not all institution’s operate library fines. An example is the University of Sheffield. Library fines were abolished in 2014, and have not resurfaced since. Some institutions in the United Kingdom have seen fines topping £100,000 for students, on top of rising living costs, and the £9,000 tuition fee. The University of Sheffield’s stance on library fines is welcomed.

 

University-8
Huge library fines have been levied across UK institutions

 

The move back in 2014 was to create a more ‘user-friendly’ library. The library’s Assistant Director for customer relations Alison Little correctly suggested that some student’s would happily spend a fine in order to keep a book. She went on to say the fines ‘didn’t serve a useful purpose’ – again correct. The University has since implemented a temporary banning system – a system which has worked successfully for years at the University of Westminster for example. A common complaint of students is that they are unsure where the money spent on library fines ends up. The banning system adopted here is a much fairer way to officiate a library.
