Postgraduate Students: Borrowing, renewing & returning books

Borrowing, renewing and returning books

Books that you have borrowed are renewed automatically, up to six times, provided that no other reader has reserved or put a hold on the book. You will be e-mailed a number of days before the book must be returned when the maximum number of automatic renewals have been reached or if someone has placed a hold on the book.

Books can be checked out at the self issue machine on the Ground and First floors of the North Campus Library, you can also check out books at the library desk. In the South Campus, you can borrow books from the Self Issue Cabinet in the Reading Room. We are also providing a new Click and Collect Service in both Campuses, for more details see our Click & Collect Guide here. We will also be introducing an app in the coming weeks where you can borrow and return books using your phone.

Please return books to the book drop bins in the South Campus Reading Room and the North Campus Library, we will keep the books for 72 hours before issuing them again for safety reasons
