What can I borrow?

Browse and borrow

You can borrow items at any time using the self-issue machines. You will need your membership card; this might be your staff or student ID, or a library card we give you.

If you are a student or a member of staff you may have 50 items at once.

If you are a different type of member with borrowing entitlements you may have 10 items at once.

We guarantee that you can keep an item for at least 7 days. We'll keep on renewing your due date until someone else requests it or your library account expires.

If your book is requested you will have 7 days to return it. We’ll send you a recalled items email. There are fines for returning items late.

Please return your items as soon as you finish using them, regardless of whether they are recalled.

If you experience any problems, speak to staff at the desk.

Fixed-loan items

One day loan journals and items in the High Demand Collection have a fixed loan period for everyone.

These items are not automatically renewed and must be returned.
