Paying fines online

You can now pay fines online as well as paying by cash or cheque in person at the China Centre Library Desk.

Whatever way you choose, you can pay off fines owed to all Bodleian Libraries in one go.

(Please note, however, that we are unable to waive fines owed to other Bodleian Libraries.)

To pay your fines online using a credit or debit card, please go to the University Online Store by clicking on/copying and pasting the following link into your internet browser:

If you are visiting this site for the first time, you will need to set up an account. To do this, click on 'My Account' and follow the on-screen instructions. Then select 'Product Catalogue', scroll down to 'Libraries' and click on 'China Centre Library'. Further instructions to follow later.

Please be aware of the following:
  • The minimum online payment is £2.
  • If you want to pay all your fines, please check your library record for the amount or contact us at the Issue Desk.
  • Fines will not automatically be cleared from your account. This can only be done by members of library staff after the automated system has notified them of your payment. For this reason, it could take 24-48 hours before fines are cleared from your account
