Self-service library

You can do most things in the library using our self-service facilities, as long as you have a valid Library membership card.

Borrowing, renewing and returning items

You can borrow, renew, and return items using our self-service machines.

The self-service system will not allow you to borrow, renew or collect items if:

  • you've reached the fine limit (£30 for undergraduates, £50 for staff and postgraduates)
  • you've already borrowed the maximum number of items
  • there are very overdue items on your record.

Book a room

You can book a group room or booth at any time using our room booking system. Book in advance to avoid disappointment.

Managing your account and requesting items

You can also complete the following tasks online, whether on or off campus:

If you cannot resolve these issues online, you will need to contact us during core hours.

What can only be done during core hours?

The following are not self-service and so you need to do them during core hours:

  • register as a new user
  • collect theses or document supply items
  • Pay fines in cash
  • Renew books over the phone.
