4          Definition

In this instrument:

the rule means the Information Infrastructure and Services Rule 2015.

5          Period for return of borrowed library items

                         (1)    This section makes provision for section 24(1) (Return or recall of borrowed items) of the rule.

                         (2)    If a person borrows an item from a library collection, the person must return the item to the Library on or before the date specified for the return of the item in the Library Management System and, if a time on that date is specified in the system, at or before that time on that date.

                         (3)    If a person borrows an item from a library collection and no date is specified for the return of the item in the Library Management System, the person must return the item to the Library within the required period after the day the item was borrowed.

                         (4)    For subsection (3), the required period is 28 days for a book or audio-visual material, and 7 days for a periodical or any other item.

6          Exceptions to recall of borrowed library items

                         (1)    This section makes provision for section 24(3) (Return or recall of borrowed items) of the rule.

                         (2)    Section 24(2) of the rule does not apply to the borrowing of an item from a library collection for a 2-hour, overnight or 2-day loan.

7          Penalties for late return of borrowed library items.

                         (1)    This section makes provision for section 24(5) (Return or recall of borrowed items) of the rule.

                         (2)    The penalty payable by a person to the University for contravening section 24(1) or (2) of the rule by not returning an item to the Library as required is:

                                           (a)    for an item borrowed on a 2-hour or overnight loan—$12 for the first hour or part of an hour, and $6 for each subsequent hour or part of an hour, during which the contravention continues; and
                                          (b)    for any other item—$6 for each day or part of a day during which the contravention continues.

                         (3)    However, if the penalty payable by a person to the University for the contravention in relation to the item would otherwise exceed $220, the penalty is $220.

                         (4)    This section applies to the borrowing of an item from a library collection on or after 1 January 2016, whether the borrowing is before or after the commencement of this section.

8          Amount of penalty owing that prevents borrowing

                         (1)    This section makes provision for section 24(6) (Return or recall of borrowed items) of the rule.

                         (2)    The prescribed amount is $25.

9          Penalties for loss or destruction of borrowed library items

                         (1)    This section makes provision for section 25(1)(b) (Loss or destruction of borrowed items) of the rule.

                         (2)    The penalty payable by a person to the University for the loss or destruction of an item borrowed from a library collection is the total of the following components:

                                           (a)    a replacement cost component of $110 or, if in the Librarian’s opinion this amount is insufficient to cover the cost to the Library of replacing the item, the higher amount that the Librarian considers necessary to cover the cost to the Library of replacing the item;
                                          (b)    an administrative cost component of $110.

[Note:         All amounts mentioned in this section and section 10 are GST inclusive.]

                         (3)    However, if the item is subsequently returned to the Library, the administrative cost component of the penalty remains payable, but:

                                           (a)    if the item has not yet been replaced by the Library—the amount of the penalty payable for the item is reduced by the amount of the replacement cost component of the penalty; or
                                          (b)    if the item has already been replaced by the Library—the replacement cost component of the penalty is reduced to the amount actually incurred by the Library in replacing the item.

10      Penalties for damage to library items etc.

                         (1)    This section makes provision for section 26(2) (Damage to library items etc.) of the rule.

                         (2)    The penalty payable by a person to the University for the damage to an item in a library collection or anything else in the Library is the total of the following components:

                                           (a)    a repair cost component of $110 or, if in the Librarian’s opinion this amount is insufficient to cover the cost to the Library of repairing the damage, the higher amount that the Librarian considers necessary to cover the cost to the Library of repairing the damage;
                                          (b)    an administrative cost component of $110.
