If you are not sure how the borrowing and fines system works, go to http://www.gcu.ac.uk/library/usingthelibrary/borrowing/fines/. On this web page, there is a form for library fines and disputes. You can use this if you think you have been treated unfairly.

Location and Facilities

The Library is located in the Saltire centre, which is also a learning and social hub and has a lot of different facilities. There are computers for you to use as well as printers, scanners and photocopiers. There is a cafe on the ground floor, but the upper floors of the building are quiet study area and you are not allowed to bring food and hot drinks in there. You can bring, however, water bottles and other bottled cold drinks.
