I want to borrow some books

This is the key information you need to know about borrowing from the University Library:

  • Most students can borrow up to 17 items at any one time.
  • Most material has an initial loan period of 2 weeks but all books will be automatically renewed unless reserved by another student or you have an overdue item out.  A individual book can be loaned for a maximum of 12 months before you have to return it.
  • Library charges will only occur if you do not return a book after being reserved by another student.
  • High demand texts will have a ‘Not for Loan’ copy for use in the library.
  • Distance learners can have up to four books posted out to them.
