30 - 38 Borrowing
29. No book may be removed from the Library or kept in a study unless a record of its loan has been made by a member of the Library staff, or via the self-check system. Library users will be held responsible for all books issued to their Library records as long as the issue record for those books remains un-cancelled. Books on loan are for the personal use of the borrower only, and must not be passed on to any person, whether entitled to use the Library or not, except with the special permission of the Librarian. Users will be responsible for any use made of any borrower's card issued to them. If the card is lost, the user will remain responsible until the Library is informed of the loss. Replacement student cards can be purchased from Central Student Administration. Replacement staff cards can be obtained from Media Services. External users should request a replacement card at a Library enquiry desk. A charge may be made to cover the cost of replacing a lost card.
30. Books (with the exception of those marked "One day loan" or "Not to be borrowed" or "Reference") will be due for return on or before the date stamped in them, or notified to the reader at the time of issue or renewal, unless recalled. The Librarian may vary the loan period or withhold or restrict the circulation of any book in the Library.
31. Books marked "Not to be borrowed" or "Reference" may not be taken out of the Library. Other books will be due for return on or before the date stamped in them, or notified to the user at the time of issue or renewal, unless recalled (see Regulation 33). A user may check their Library record online to see the books currently borrowed. The Librarian may vary the loan period or withhold or restrict the circulation of any book in the Library.
32. Books on loan, except those marked "One-day loan" or "High Demand Collection", may be renewed for a further loan period, if they are not required by another user. A user may renew books in person, by telephone or by accessing their Library record online.
33. A book on loan may be recalled by the Library at any time, and the book must then be returned to the Library by the date specified on the recall notice, regardless of the date stamped in the book or notified to the user at the time of issue or renewal. It is the responsibility of users to ensure that they are in a position to respond promptly to recall notices.
34. Fines are levied for the late return of items, in accordance with notices displayed in the Library and on the Library website. A user may check their Library record online, which lists any outstanding charges, and may pay those charges at a Library enquiry desk, by telephone, or online. Users who fail to return books may be invoiced for the accumulated fines, the cost of replacement, and an administration charge, and their borrowing rights may be suspended. Students should note that in order to graduate they must pay any outstanding debts to the University, which includes Library charges.
35. No person shall borrow a book from the Library if the maximum fines threshold has been reached.36. The Librarian may grant special facilities during a limited time to any person entitled to the use of the Library.
37. Students who have taken their final examinations or submitted their theses cease to have borrowing privileges. Upon graduation they may register as graduate members under Regulation 8.
38. Books borrowed from other libraries through the document supply service are subject in each case to the conditions imposed by the lending library.
