Borrow, Renew, Return: How do I Borrow Items - Law

Borrowing from the Law Library

Please be aware that only our current staff and students can enter the library – DMU Staff and students need their DMU ID cards to scan the door lock to enter the library.  There is no access to our Law Library for members of the public, students / staff from other universities or for former DMU students.  Our external members only have access to the Kimberlin Library.

Please check the current Law Library opening hours before travelling to visit as the Law Library is open fewer hours than the Kimberlin Library.

Fines

Fines are charged for the late return of any overdue items which are reserved by another borrower and borrowing rights will be suspended when charges exceed £15. All items are subject to reservation by another borrower. Our fine rates are:

  • Overdue item with reservation: 50p per day
  • Overdue Short Loan item: 70p per hour or part thereof
  • Overdue Laptop: £1 per hour or part thereof
  • Overdue Inter Library Loan: £5.25 per item
  • Overdue WACOM Pen: £1 per hour or part thereof

Fines incurred from overdue items will normally only be waived in line with the circumstances described in our library fines exceptions policy, provided in the link below. If you feel your circumstances match those within the policy, then please ask at Kimberlin Library or contact us to discuss waiving fines.

How to pay a Fine

Lost Books

If you misplace or lose an item you will be asked to pay for it at the current replacement cost plus a sum to cover administration. Please speak to the library supervisor on duty when you’re next in the library, or call 0116 257 7042, and our staff can arrange for a bill to be prepared for you.
