Library Appeals

Purpose

The Library Regulations explain how a student can appeal against a decision of the Librarian to impose a fine, charge or other penalty.

Grounds

Any student who feels they have a case may appeal.

Process

You should submit your grounds for appeal in writing to the Director of Library Services not more than 15 working days after the notice of the imposition of the fine or other penalty is issued.  A written response will normally be provided to you within 15 working days of the receipt of the appeal. 

If you remain unsatisfied with the Director's decision you may within 15 working days of the notification submit an appeal in writing to the Pro-Vice-Chancellor for Information Services who will determine whether or not your appeal will be upheld.  A written response will normally be provided to you within 30 working days of the receipt of the appeal. 

Where your borrowing rights have been suspended, the Director of Library Services will have discretion to authorise their re-instatement pending the outcome of your appeal.
