Fines and charges
You will incur a fine for any item not returned by its due date. Current fine rates are:
- standard loans: 20p per day
You can pay fines of £2 or more online with a debit or credit card. You can also pay at the library by cash or a cheque payable to ‘Oxford University Philosophy and Theology Faculties Library’, or post your cheque to the library’s address. Find out more about fines and charges for Bodleian Libraries.
If you cannot find a book, please contact library staff as soon as possible and continue searching for it. You will still receive automatic reminders and fines will accumulate until the book is returned. If the book is found, you will only need to pay a late book fine when it is checked in at the library.
If after 2 weeks the book is not found and returned, you will receive an invoice to cover replacement costs: the replacement cost of the lost book plus a processing and administration charge of £11. There is a minimum standard £35 charge if the book is out of print. The invoice should be paid within 7 days. There will not be a late book fine. The library does not accept replacement books. You can pay online for a lost theology book or a lost philosophy book with a credit or debit card.
