The Massey Libraries at Wellington, Manawatu and Albany campuses are no longer charging overdue fines, except on items with a waiting list or on short loan.
This puts print books on a more equal footing with e-books which do not have fines.
Students still need to renew or return books by the due date, and the library will email a reminder about this. They will be unable to request or borrow if any item is more than 10 days overdue.
To encourage the earliest possible return of waiting list and short loan items the maximum charge will increase to $45 per overdue item.
Further information on the charges is available on the Library website.
