Pat Knight's question about charges this morning has prompted me to finally share with you all the responses I received to a similar question a few weeks ago. I asked what method people used for recouping costs and how much they charged.
The average charge was about £3. Excluding those who have responded to Pat today, I had 19 responses. Of these...
3 x Institutions charged nothing for academic staff requests;-
6 x Institutions made a direct charge to everyone at the point of request:-
2 x Institutions invoiced Departments
8 x Institutions had a voucher system or cash transfer system to recover charges from departments.
Thanks to all who responded.
