Q. How do I borrow a book?
To take out a book you should use one of our self-service machines. You will find these in all of our libraries and in the larger libraries they are at several locations throughout the library. You will need to use your student card in order to take out books and other items, so make sure you always have this with you.
If you need help using the self-issue machines, please ask a member of staff at Customer Services during staffed hours.
The normal loan period for most items is 2 weeks, which will automatically renew if not requested by another user. Please check your student emails for messages from the library with regards to requested items.
If you have reached your maximum borrowing entitlement, you won't be able to borrow anything else until you have returned some items.
