Borrowing from the Library




Note: Distance Learners may borrow without visiting the Library.

Borrowing Library Items

In the University Library you can use the self service kiosks located in the Atrium: you will need to have your University card with you to borrow.

Returning Library items

In the University Library you can return your loans at the self service returns sorter, located in the Atrium.

All University Library loans must be returned to the University Library.

It may be possible to renew your loan.

Recalled items

You may receive a "recall notice" if another borrower has reserved an item on loan to you. This recall notice is sent to your University email address.
Note: If you do not return the item by the new due date, you will have to pay a fine.

Fines

You will need to pay your fines before you can have any new library items issued to you.
See the borrowing, charges and fines table for details of fine rates.

Reservations

You can reserve items that are on loan via the Library Catalogue.

You cannot reserve books which the Catalogue shows are available.

When an item you have reserved becomes available, you have seven days to collect it. You will be notified of an item waiting collection via an email.
