Sanctions: what are they and do I want one?

Short answer: no, you don’t want one.

Around exam time, the Library sends out hundreds of emails to students and staff who have one or more items overdue – by at least four weeks.  If you get one of these emails, you’ll notice that you’ve been asked to pay a $73.00 replacement cost for each item.  Don’t panic!  If you return the item(s) you borrowed we’ll happily waive the fine.

If you’re unlucky enough to get that reminder email, then you will also have had a sanction added to your record.  A sanction is like a block.  If you have a sanction and don’t do anything about it, you will be blocked from borrowing.  To remove the sanction, all you need to do is contact the Library and it’s all good.

But there are more serious consequences if you don’t contact us: your exam results are withheld, you won’t be able to register for graduation and you won’t be able to enrol in any QUT units or other tertiary courses.

So, phone us, come in and see us or send an email and we’ll remove your sanction.  Sorted!
